Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy stated Monday that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has a proper hip pointer harm and that the choice to take away him from Sunday night time’s sport had “zero to do together with his play.”
The coach stated Trubisky suffered the harm on a sack on the finish of the second quarter of Sunday’s 17-7 loss to the Rams.
Nagy on Monday credited Trubisky for his toughness and stated the quarterback needed to remain within the sport — however he added that with Trubisky, typically he has “to guard him from himself.” Nagy advised reporters that he was conscious of his quarterback’s harm at halftime and that it did not develop into a priority till the hip began to tighten up within the fourth quarter.
Nagy was seen huddling with Trubisky on the sideline when he was faraway from the sport. The coach was requested Monday what he stated to his quarterback.
“I needed him to know, coming from me, that he must be brutally sincere with me with reference to his ache and the place he is at,” Nagy stated. “I sat there and I advised him, ‘Pay attention, man we respect your toughness, we respect you being as powerful as you may presumably might be and wanting to remain within the sport, however I want to have the ability to decide.'”
Ryan Clark, Tim Hasselbeck and Chris Mortensen agree that regardless of Mitchell Trubisky’s hip harm and poor play of late, the Bears is not going to hand over on him as their quarterback.
Nagy stated he’s conscious of the skepticism surrounding Trubisky’s harm and the choice to take away him from the sport, however he advised reporters that the decision was made solely due to the harm.
“It was fully based mostly off his harm and the place he was at,” he stated.
Trubisky completed the night time 24-of-43 passing for 190 yards and one landing with one interception (65.1 passer score) earlier than Nagy went with veteran backup Chase Daniel on Chicago’s ultimate offensive drive.
As for Trubisky’s standing for this week, Nagy stated, “We’re working by means of that.” The Bears host the New York Giants on Sunday.
Nagy stated that Trubisky will stay the beginning quarterback if he’s wholesome.
Trubisky — the second general choose of the 2017 NFL draft — has handed for simply 1,580 yards and 9 touchdowns with 4 interceptions this season.
