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 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 will take the field for Thursday's preseason game at Cincinnati, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
Trubisky was among a cadre of Bears that were held out of the Hall of Fame Game, but coach Matt Nagy will allow the quarterback to see his first exhibition action of 2018 this week. While Trubisky's reps are to be determined, it wouldn't surprise if he's limited to one or two series before giving way to Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray under center.
Although he's made some impressive throws, Trubisky has also struggled with poor decision-making and poorly-placed passes during the Bears first practices of training camp, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Despite Trubisky's struggles, not only is he learning a new offense, but he's also playing with many receivers who are new to the team. In addition, he's started just 12 games at the NFL level and 25 total starts since high school, so as talented as he appears to be, performances like these should be expected given the circumstances. As long as Trubisky shows steady progress throughout camp, he'll continue to be worth a draft pick as a fantasy backup with upside.
