Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was pulled from their last game against the Los Angeles Rams because of a hip injury.

However, Trubisky practiced all week, has no injury designation and is expected to be Chicago's starting quarterback this week against the New York Giants.

So, if Trubisky was able to practice fully this week, what happened to the hip pointer injury that forced him out of the game? I'm not saying Trubisky didn't suffer some kind of injury, but there were no limitations on him during practice.

It makes you wonder if head coach Matt Nagy flat benched him against the Rams because of his poor play, not the hip injury.

Nagy has publicly defended Trubisky and believes he's gotten better this season, even though Bears fans don't feel the same way. Even if he's playing hurt, he should have a better showing at home against a lackluster Giants team this week.

Yet, no single game performance can make Bears fans forget Trubisky was drafted before Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes.
