    All signs are pointing to Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky being under center when the team takes on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football.

    Trubisky, who has missed the Bears’ last two games because of a shoulder issue, expressed confidence that he will be on the field for the critically important NFC showdown, and says that the one thing standing in his way is proving to the coaching staff that he can handle the return from his injury.

    “(I feel) really close to 100 percent,” he said on Wednesday. “I just gotta show coach.”

    That would be head coach Matt Nagy, who has been trying to slow-play Trubisky’s return, but also said that he is confident that his starting quarterback should be able to return to the field as the Bears welcome the 11-1 Rams to Soldier Field on Sunday.

    “I feel strong that he will play, but I gotta see more,” Nagy said at a press conference Wednesday.

    Without Trubisky, the Bears beat the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, but were unable to continue their winning ways on Sunday when they lost 30-27 to the New York Giants.

    Trubisky only recently started throwing again, but it’s unclear how much work he will be cleared to do when the Bears take the practice field at Halas Hall on Wednesday afternoon.
