The Chicago Bears will “likely” be without quarterback Mitchell Trubisky when they take on the Oakland Raiders on Sunday in London.
Trubisky, who suffered a left shoulder injury during last week’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, did not practice with the team on Wednesday, and although head coach Matt Nagy insisted the quarterback is “day-to-day” because of the injury, he also conceded that it’s “likely” he won’t suit up for the team’s final game before their bye week.
The Bears had a pretty full injury report on Wednesday, as six players did not participate in the workout. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, who missed the team’s last game with a concussion, and defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, who missed the game with a knee issue, both were out for practice, as was offensive lineman Ted Larsen, who suffered an injury in the win over the Vikings.
Defensive lineman Bilal Nichols has missed the team’s last two games with a broken hand and was not on the practice field, and linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe missed the workout with a hamstring injury he suffered against the Vikings.
Offensive lineman Kyle Long was a limited participant with a hip injury.
The Bears did get some good news, as tight end Trey Burton and kicker Eddy Pineiro were both full participants in the workout.
The Bears will travel to London on Thursday ahead of their game against the Raiders. The team will provide a full update on which players make the trip abroad, which will provide an early indication of playing status for Sunday.
Trubisky is expected to travel with the team.
