Lions-Bears injury report: Mitchell Trubisky’s status in doubt, Lions still missing 2 key players

It’s looking more likely that Mitchell Trubisky could miss Thursday’s game vs. the Lions.

For the second straight day, Mitchell Trubisky was listed as a non-participant in the Chicago Bears’ practice. On Monday, the team did not officially practice, so it was an estimated injury report. On Tuesday, however, the team participated in a walkthrough, and Trubisky was not among the players going through the drills, according to their official injury report.

Head coach Matt Nagy said the team had not yet made a decision and wouldn’t give a confidence level in Trubisky’s chances to play against the Detroit Lions on Thursday.

“We have to be able to see exactly where he’s at as we go forward, and we won’t know that really—with such a short a week—we won’t even know right up until the game,” Nagy said.

Outside media reports are conflicting for Trubisky’s chances to play. Adam Schefter says the team is optimistic about his chances, but former NFL doctor David J. Chao doesn’t think he’ll play based on reviewing the injury on film.

“This cannot be shrugged off as a minor AC joint sprain, which a quarterback can play through,” Chao wrote on Tuesday. “I believe the Bears that there is no surgery required or major damage. But based on the video, I am pessimistic about his ability to play in this short week.”

On the Lions’ side, the injury report remains the same: No Kerryon Johnson, no Marvin Jones Jr. At this point, it doesn’t appear the Lions will add a running back on a short week, meaning they’ll have to roll with Theo Riddick, LeGarrette Blount and Zach Zenner as their backfield.

Here are the full injury reports for Tuesday.
