Trubisky will start against Lions
By: Mike Stiles - Thursday, December 3, 2020

(LAKE FOREST, IL) – The Chicago Bears are sticking with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky for Sunday's home game against the Detroit Lions. Head coach Matt Nagy made the announcement on Wednesday. Trubisky, 26, returned to the starting lineup at Green Bay last week after a hip injury to Nick Foles rendered the 31 year old inactive. Trubisky passed for 242 yards and three touchdowns but committed three costly turnovers in Chicago's 41-25 loss to the Packers. The 2017 No. 2 pick traditionally plays his best football versus the Lions. In six career starts against Detroit, Trubisky has thrown for 1,601 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions (106.0 quarterback rating) -- including four consecutive games with at least three touchdowns and a passer rating over 100.0. Trubisky threw for a career-high 355 passing yards against Detroit in 2018, and he led the Bears to an improbable fourth-quarter comeback victory at Ford Field in Week 1 of this season. As for Foles, the veteran returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday but is still recovering from the hip injury he suffered Nov. 16 against the Minnesota Vikings.
