Mitchell Trubisky partially tore the labrum of his non-throwing shoulder during the week four contest against the Vikings in 2019. The injury itself only kept Trubisky sidelined for one week, but forced him to play with a huge shoulder harness for the remainder of the season.
Mitchell Trubisky started the season struggling. It wouldn't be justified to blame his poor performance in 2019 on the brace, but their was a drop off in production when he returned. Trubisky's first game back against the Saints was atrocious, and possibly the worst game we've ever seen him play. You can tell because he was even missing those six yard dig routes that he routinely makes. In that Saints game he registered zero rushing attempts, and really didn't start utilizing his scrambling ability until week 12 against the Giants where he attempted seven runs. Bears analysts and fans called for Nagy to use Mitchell's legs more all season long, but it seems like that really wasn't an option.
After the season we found out that Mitchell Trubisky underwent surgery, and gained a little more understanding on why his legs weren't utilized the way we would like them to be.
It has been about six months since we received news that Mitchell Trubisky underwent surgery, and finally we get an update on how he's progressing.
Looking at the statement from Spear Training, Mitchell Trubisky is 100% healthy and ready to go. This is it, his back is up against the wall. Will we get the Mitchell we see during two minute drill, or will we get the one we see for the other 58? It's the last year of his rookie contract and there is a viable replacement, Nick Foles, ready to take the reigns if he struggles. It's now or never, Mitchell.
