Bears' backup QB ready if called upon

  • Packers TE Jimmy Graham returns to practice after suffering broken thumb

Though it was not clear exactly when the injury occurred, Trubisky seemed in pain following a 5-yard run late in the Bears' 25-20 victory.

The coach says it is possible that Trubisky could play against the Lions without practicing all week. I'm saying cautiously optimistic, but I can't make any promises.

Nagy wouldn't describe the injury beyond saying Trubisky is "in pain, which is normal". The Bears (7-3) lead the NFC North and, should Trubisky not be able to play on Thanksgiving, would turn to veteran backup Chase Daniel. Trubisky is dealing with a shoulder bruise and if it was a Sunday game, he'd probably play. "If Thursday's game were Sunday, the Bears believe Trubisky could play and they believe he'll be ready a week from Sunday against the NY Giants", Schefter tweeted. Maybe they'll have some time then to watch the replay of a victory more significant than any in the previous seven nonplayoff seasons.

Running back Chris Thompson is also listed as out as he continues to recover from a rib injury for Week 12's Thanksgiving Day contest.

"We feel right now it's a day-to-day thing with him", Nagy said. "But when you just played somebody a couple of weeks ago, there's that fine line between chasing the cat's tail, as to what you think they're going to do, or they think you're going to do". But he has extensive knowledge of the offensive system after being in it from 2013-15 while Nagy was quarterbacks coach with Kansas City.

Daniel has a 1-1 record as an National Football League starter and has completed 51 of 78 for 480 yards with a touchdown pass and an interception.

Daniel hasn't thrown a regular-season pass since 2016. The two-time MVP has registered 19 touchdowns and just one interception in 10 games.

The Green Bay Packers play the last of four road games in a five-game stretch when they face the Minnesota Vikings at US Bank Stadium on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Anthony Barr, who has missed the past three games because of a hamstring injury, will play.
