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.

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.

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.

ESPN Chicago considers Mark Sanchez the "favorite" to open the season as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback.

We do not. With Sanchez sidelined by a knee injury, No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky has been operating as the second-team quarterback. It's extremely hard to believe that will not be the case come Week 1. No matter their readiness, teams have a difficult bordering on impossible time of keeping early-round quarterbacks buried on the depth chart. Trubisky should make 2017 starts.
Jun 6 - 4:41 PM

Speaking at his introductory press conference on Friday, Mitchell Trubisky acknowledged that Mike Glennon is still the Bears' starting quarterback.

"Mike is the starting quarterback and I’m very excited to learn from him and the rest of the veterans on the team and I can’t wait to help the Bears win," said Trubisky. The Bears stunned the football world by taking Trubisky second overall after trading four picks to the Niners to move up one spot. Chicago would only be on the hook for $2.5 million if they cut Glennon next offseason, so the plan could be for Trubisky to sit for a year before taking the reigns in 2018. Trubisky started just 13 games during his career at North Carolina.
Apr 28 - 4:21 PM

Bears traded up with the 49ers to select North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Stunning. Owners of the No. 3 pick, Chicago surrendered this year's Nos. 3, 67 and 111 selections and a 2018 third-rounder to move up one spot. It means they faced intense competition. Trubisky (6’2/222) sat behind 2016 Packers camp arm Marquise Williams his first two seasons at UNC before taking the starting reigns as a redshirt junior last season and leading the Tar Heels to an 8-5 mark with school records in passing yards (3,748) and touchdowns (30). A plus athlete with 4.67 speed, Trubisky added five rushing TDs and is a legitimate scrambling threat. On tape, Trubisky impresses as a tough competitor with a quick release, but he showed a tendency to get squeamish when pressured and made only 13 college starts. The small sample makes him a frightening prospect. Nevertheless, Trubisky looks the part of a potential mid-range NFL starter with Ryan Tannehill-level tools. He'll compete with Mike Glennon for the Bears' starting job.
Apr 27 - 8:23 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports the Browns have been "working the phones" trying to trade up from No. 12 overall to draft Mitchell Trubisky.

Cabot, via multiple league sources, reports the Browns will take Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick and then focus their attention on coming up from No. 12 to land Trubisky. It'll be easier said than done, but Cleveland has plenty of draft ammo to pull it off if they want. Cabot reports talks will get going if Trubisky falls into the pick Nos. 5-6 range of the first round. The 49ers, Bears, and even the Jaguars are options to take Trubisky at Nos. 2-4 when Cleveland passes at No. 1.
Apr 27 - 4:38 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is "square in consideration" for the Browns with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn had Trubisky at No. 1 in his mock, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah wrote the uncertainty in this draft "starts at pick one," and Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports two teams looking at quarterbacks believe Cleveland will either take Trubisky at No. 1 or trade up to grab him with the No. 2 or 3 picks. At this point, there is enough smoke to assume Cleveland really is considering Trubisky with the first pick regardless of if that is a smart move or not. If Trubisky does come off the board first, the 49ers will field an avalanche of calls from teams looking to move up to land Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett.

UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is the No. 1 overall pick in Bob McGinn's final mock draft.

McGinn is longtime NFL reporter for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel who annually produces one of the most accurate mock drafts, as recorded by The Huddle Report. McGinn and Mike Mayock both have top-six mock scores over the past half decade among over 100 entrants. Both McGinn and Mayock have Trubisky landing with the Browns, although McGinn has Trubisky going No. 1 overall, and Myles Garrett going No. 2 to the 49ers. Mayock has the Browns taking Garrett at No. 1 and trading up for Trubisky at No. 5. Mock drafts are a lot of fun, yet incredibly unreliable. We'll find out what happens in real life tonight.
Apr 27 - 2:00 AM

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Browns have talked with three teams picking in the top eight about a trade up from No. 12.

Likely to select Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, the Browns might have to move up from No. 12 for their latest "quarterback solution." The Browns have been linked to UNC's Mitchell Trubisky for months, but his stock is unclear. He could go anywhere from No. 2 to No. 12. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported as recently as three days ago that the Browns were still seriously considering Trubisky at No. 1, but it's ultimately unlikely.
