Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky quickly exited Sunday's 16-6 win over the Vikings in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury and was ruled out, the team announced

The play occurred around the 12-minute mark in the first quarter after Trubisky was sacked by the Vikings' Danielle Hunter. He landed awkwardly as the ball came loose and he fumbled. But the fumble was negated by a defensive holding.

Trubisky headed to the sidelines after the play and then went to the locker room. Chase Daniel replaced Trubisky and helped lead a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown drive to put the Bears on top 7-0 after the first possession. 

Chicago later announced Trubisky was out before the end of the first quarter. After halftime, Trubisky returned to Bears sideline with his left arm in a sling.

Head coach Matt Nagy said after the game that he doesn’t think Trubisky’s injury is season-ending. 

The Bears next take on the Raiders next Sunday in London.
