Mitchell Trubisky completed 8-of-16 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown and rushed four times for 32 yards in the Bears' Week 6 win over the Ravens.
Trubisky's stats don't jump out, but he did exactly what the Bears needed in this hard-fought game that went to overtime. Trubisky's touchdown went to Dion Sims, and his best throw of the game was Favrian off exceptional pocket movement to deliver a dart to Kendall Wright, setting up Connor Barth's game-winning field goal. Trubisky will remain a low-end two-quarterback-league option in Week 7 against the Panthers. We still like the progress he's shown, but the Bears need to get Trubisky better receivers in the offseason. Until then, he may not help much in fantasy. Oct 15 - 4:58 PM

Mitchell Trubisky completed just 12-of-25 passes for 119 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bears' Week 5 loss to the Vikings.

The Bears scored 17 points total in Trubisky's first NFL start, but he was responsible for just eight of those. Chicago's defense got a safety in the first quarter, and P Pat O'Donnell threw a long touchdown on a fake punt for the other seven points. Trubisky started off hot, getting the Bears into Vikings territory on the first four possessions, but penalties and drops stalled drives and took big plays off the board. Trubisky's touchdown was on a tipped ball to Zach Miller that should have been intercepted, and he also lost a fumble deep inside his own territory while throwing a back-breaking interception at his own 30-yard line to set up the Vikes' game-winning field goal. Trubisky is clearly talented and can create with his legs, but he's a work in progress. He'll make his first road start in Baltimore in Week 6. The Ravens will be a defense to stream.
Oct 9 - 11:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears will start Mitchell Trubisky Week 5 against the Vikings.

Considering how bad Mike Glennon has been, it is something of a farce Trubisky did not see action during the first four games. The No. 2 overall pick will get his shot now, however, and at the very least is an upgrade for the Bears' skill players even if he is not a realistic option himself in standard fantasy leagues, especially with the Vikings, Ravens, and Panthers next up on the schedule. Trubisky completed 36-of-53 preseason passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns.
Oct 2 - 10:33 AM

Mitchell Trubisky has been promoted to No. 2 on the Bears' quarterback depth chart.

He had been behind veteran Mark Sanchez. "He earned it," said coach John Fox. "It’s not something we handed him for any particular reason other than he earned it." Mike Glennon will open as the Bears' starter but it wouldn't be a surprise if Trubisky gets a chance later this year.
Sep 6 - 5:23 PM

Mitchell Trubisky will play in the Bears' preseason finale on Thursday.

Mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez won't. It means Trubisky, a player who has made 13 starts since high school and the Bears sold the farm to trade up for, couldn't beat out Sanchez for No. 2 duties. It could also mean coach John Fox is being a dunderheaded traditionalist, insisting on making Trubisky jump through hoops to "earn" his job. It's hard to believe the No. 2 overall pick won't make rookie starts, but it could be a while.
Aug 29 - 1:58 PM

Mitchell Trubisky completed 10-of-15 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown while adding one rush for nine yards Sunday in the Bears’ third preseason game.

Trubisky had a few hiccups including a wobbly pass to Dion Sims that nearly went for an interception. But he also had his fair share of highlights including a pristine 45-yard touchdown pass to Tanner Gentry early in the fourth quarter. It was another good showing for Trubisky, though probably not enough to overtake Mike Glennon for the starting job. Trubisky’s time is coming and it could be sooner than any of us expect.
Aug 27 - 4:26 PM

Mitchell Trubisky is getting some reps with the first-team offense this week.

Trubisky has worked exclusively with the backups to this point. Mike Glennon will start Chicago's third preseason game, with Trubisky expected to get some reps with the first team in the second half. It's a positive development for the No. 2 overall pick, but Trubisky remains unlikely to unseat Glennon before Week 1.
Aug 23 - 5:44 PM

Mitchell Trubisky completed 6-of-8 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' second preseason game.

Trubisky did not enter the game until late in the third quarter, with Mark Sanchez getting in one series between starter Mike Glennon and the rookie. Coming off a rampaging performance in his NFL debut, Trubisky had a nondescript night on Saturday. Half of his yardage came on a screen pass and an easy dump-off on a bootleg, and Benny Cunningham was wide open on his short touchdown pass. He also forced a throw to the sideline which probably should have been intercepted. Even with Glennon struggling, playing Trubisky so late suggests the Bears are not serious about evaluating the No. 2 overall pick as a potential starter.
Aug 20 - 1:11 AM

Mitchell Trubisky knows he still has "a lot of work to do."

Trubisky was the talk of the first preseason week after completing 18-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, but he is not getting too far ahead. "I was pleased with how I played," the rookie said, "but plenty more mistakes are going on during practice for me that I need to work on and continue to improve in my game." The Bears have been adamant about Mike Glennon starting all season, but their resolve will be tested if Trubisky continues to show well in the preseason.

Mitchell Trubisky completed 18-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' preseason opener.

Trubisky looked outstanding in his first NFL action. He consistently went through his reads quickly, navigated the pocket and passed with accuracy. After spoon-feeding him short throws to get his confidence up the Bears let him play more. He proceeded to make difficult throws on the run with precision. Despite it being a preseason game against the Broncos' second- and third-stringers, this was incredibly encouraging from this year's No. 2 overall pick.
Aug 10 - 11:14 PM

The Chicago Tribune believes the Bears have "made it clear" No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky is the "future, not the present."

Taking stock of Trubisky's camp, beat writer Brad Biggs rhetorically asked: "Would you like (Trubisky) to be a little bigger than the 6-foot-3 at which he's generously listed? No question." Biggs did praise Trubisky's release and athleticism. A 23 year old (this month) who's made 13 starts since high school, Trubisky will begin the year on the pine behind Mike Glennon. Be that as it may, it's practically unheard of in this era for first-round quarterbacks not to make rookie starts.
Aug 3 - 8:43 PM

Bears first-round QB Mitchell Trubisky struggled taking snaps under center at Saturday's practice.

He fumbled his first two snaps and three of his first five from C Taylor Boggs. "I just lost focus there for a period of time," said Trubisky. "And then I was starting to overthink it and couldn't get it." First-day jitters are commonplace among rookies, though it's obviously a little troubling that Trubisky is struggling with something as basic as taking snaps. Trubisky has been working as the No. 3 quarterback behind Mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez.
Jul 30 - 10:54 AM

Bears signed No. 2 overall pick QB Mitchell Trubisky to a four-year contract.

It comes on the day Bears rookies report to training camp. We're not sure what the hangup was in talks, but surely it had to do with offset language. Either way, Trubisky is now signed and sealed and ready to compete with Mike Glennon. Glennon should start Week 1, but Trubisky is likely to make 2017 starts.
Jul 19 - 1:34 PM

Bears first-round QB Mitchell Trubisky has no plans to hold out.

Trubisky is the Bears' only unsigned draft pick. We've seen rookies hold out like Joey Bosa last year, but Trubisky has made clear he plans to report to training camp on time. Trubisky is likely to begin his career as Mike Glennon's backup, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him make starts as a rookie.

Mike Glennon thinks No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky is doing a "great job" picking up the offense.

"He works really hard at it. He asks questions," Glennon said. "He's done a really good job of learning the offense, understanding what we're trying to accomplish, and I think he does a great job picking that up for being a rookie." Glennon is the heavy favorite to start Week 1, but he is simply keeping the seat warm for Trubisky, who is likely to make rookie starts.
