The severity of Mitch Trubisky's shoulder injury is still relatively unknown, but recent reports certainly don't sound good. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Trubisky is currently in Los Angeles seeing a specialist about an injury that may be affecting his labrum and rotator cuff:
Trubisky hurt his shoulder on the one play he was on the field for last Sunday, a three-yard run in the first half of the Bears' loss to the Saints. Obviously a tough blow to him personally, the injury also hurts a Bears' offense staff that believes they had figured out a role for the former starter in the current offense.
"Overall, big picture wise, it’s unfortunate when any player gets hurt, let alone him, when he’s had a couple years of shoulder injuries," Matt Nagy said on Wednesday. "And so that part for him and for us is upsetting and frustrating. Disappointing is probably the better word.
"At the same point in time, you know, the position that we are in and that we've gone through to get to this point, we also know that using him in different areas and growing with a package with him can be good. And I think that was a start for us right there. Again, it’s just unfortunate what happened on that play, but we’re trying to do everything for him and for us as a team to use all of our weapons as much as we can."
