Your long and incredibly specific local nightmare is over: Mitchell Trubisky was a full participant at Bears practice on Wednesday. After missing Chicagoís last two games against the Lions and Giants on the road due to a throwing shoulder injury https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/hats , thatís a good indication he will start for the Bears this Sunday night against the Rams. Itís been an interesting few weeks for the Bears with backup Chase Daniel taking Chicago to a 1-1 record during his short stint: a mark any NFL team will take when their regular starter goes down. Daniel was capable, but ultimately too limited and flawed. Everyone knew that if the Bears were going to not only make the playoffs for the first time since 2010, but do damage once they get there, they needed a fully healthy Trubisky. They needed a completely recovered and athletically gifted quarterback to go claw to hoof with the heavyweights of the NFC, like the 11-1 Rams. Without Trubisky this still-developing Bears offense canít go anywhere meaningful. Heís the engine that drives their success and of which gives them a fighting chance in a heavily contested postseason field. His return is undoubtedly welcome and comes at the best possible time in yet another measuring stick game for the rising Bears against Los Angeles. When asked about Trubiskyís status on Wednesday, head coach Matt Nagy was coy and not entirely committal in saying, ďI feel strong that he will play.Ē When asked if he expects to play this week, Trubisky was far more aggressive: ďI do, I just gotta show coach that I can play.ĒBy every indication of the Bearsí first full practice in advance of their heavyweight fight with the Rams, Trubisky did just that in showing Nagy proof of his health. The Bearsí face of the franchise is back.

With two weeks before official fan voting is closed, plenty of players on the NFC North-leading Bears are in a prime spot to be recognized as Pro Bowlers, in accordance with the fan vote. When you play well, sometimes your individual talent is recognized. When you play well and are on a good team Chicago Bears Hoodie , well, the fan vote wonít let you down. At the latest count, Khalil Mack (outside linebacker), Eddie Jackson (free safety), Kyle Fuller (cornerback), and Tarik Cohen (return specialist) are all the leading vote-getters at their respective positions in the NFC. Not lagging far behind is Roquan Smith (second among inside linebackers), Akiem Hicks (sixth among defensive tackles), Prince Amukamara (sixth among cornerbacks), and Trey Burton (sixth among tight ends). As it stands, based on the fan vote, Burton is the only man that has to make a major jump to the top four in voting among tight ends to be a Pro Bowler. (The below image does not reflect Mack, Jackson, Fuller, and Cohenís updated standing.) Keep in mind, this is just the fan vote Tarik Cohen Color Rush Jersey , which accounts for only one-third towards determining the 88 NFL players eventually voted in. Coaches and players have a say, too, and they will vote on December 14th: a day after fan voting has concluded. For the next two weeks, you can continue to have your say on NFL.comís official ballot, and also vote on social media. Every retweet on Twitter and Pro Bowl vote hashtag counts as an individual vote in itís overall summation, for example. The Pro Bowl isnít the most accurate reflector of team talent and it does have itís faults as a meaningless All-Star Game used to unfairly prop up eventual end-of-career resumes. Thatís inarguable, as this process can be often too much of a weighty and ultimately meaningless prospect. But itís still so strange to see the Bears back on such a relevant platform such as this. If the current pace continues based off of the fan vote purely, eight Bears will be voted into the Pro Bowl in Orlando played a week before Super Bowl LIII. If itís eclipsed, I guess over half of the starting roster can visit, if they like? Ah such are the perils of bona fide contention: you canít count the number of Pro Bowlers on one, or even two hands.
