Bears name Mitchell Trubisky starting QB vs. Packers

By GENE CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky will be the Chicago Bears' starting quarterback against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.

Trubisky took all the first-team snaps at practice this week but coach Matt Nagy had stopped just short of designating him the starter, just in case Nick Foles was able to return from a hip and glute injury.

But Foles was unable to practice again Friday and Nagy turned to Trubisky.

The Bears are trying to end a four-game losing streak. Nagy said it's still possible Foles could be the backup quarterback for the game.
