Trubisky completed 25 of 34 passes for 200 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Monday night's 24-17 win over the Seahawks. He also rushed five times for 24 yards. Trubisky got off to another strong start, throwing a touchdown via a shuffle pass on Chicago's first offensive drive. After that, the second-year pro tossed a pair of picks prior to halftime, but responded with a 10-yard touchdown while rolling to his weaker left side during the fourth quarter. Thanks to that score, Trubisky finally put together his first multi-touchdown performance through the air. Although he'll be disappointed by his two turnovers, the 24-year-old did enough to get the Bears their first victory of this season.
Trubisky completed 23 of 35 passes for 171 yards during Sunday's 24-23 loss to Green Bay. He also rushed seven times for 32 yards and a touchdown. The night started very well for Trubisky, who completed eight of nine passes for 99 yards in the first quarter, good for a 112.5 quarterback rating. The North Carolina product averaged just 2.7 yards per pass attempt from there on out, though, as the Bears had trouble sustaining drives and ultimately blew a 17-0 halftime lead. While the mistakes were aplenty, Trubisky nonetheless showed glimpses of being an above-average quarterback. He'll now look to rebound against the Seahawks in Week 2 in the Bears' home opener.
Trubisky won't play in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Chiefs, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports. Trubisky is being rested, along with many of the Bears' starters, for Saturday's game. The team effectively has five preseason games since they played in the Hall of Fame Game, and head coach Matt Nagy is pleased enough with how the team has looked in practice that he won't risk injury to many key players. Look for Chase Daniel to draw the start in place of Trubisky.
Trubisky completed nine of 14 passes for 90 yards with a touchdown along with an interception in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos. Trubisky was able to find TE Trey Burton on four occasions, resulting in 45 yards and a score. It appeared that the coaching staff made that connection a focus in the contest. On his interception, the quarterback appeared frustrated that Tarik Cohen didn't flatten out his route, which allowed the defensive back to step in front of Cohen to pick off the pass. In fantasy drafts, it'll only take a low investment to select Trubisky as a backup with potential for upside.
Trubisky completed two of four passes for four yards during Thursday's 30-27 loss to Cincinnati. Fans looking forward to seeing Trubisky in Matt Nagy's new scheme didn't get much more than a peek. The sophomore passer tossed a short pass to new tight end Trey Burton, had a third-down scramble called back for holding, and was out after two unproductive series. Being guided by innovative offensive minds like Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich should, in theory, be a return to more familiar territory for Trubisky, who worked in a spread-out system in North Carolina. Reports from camp and Thursday's preseason opener indicate that there's still some adjustment needed for the young quarterback.
