Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will start on Sunday against the Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter

Trubisky was listed as questionable entering Sunday with a shoulder injury. He has not played since injuring his shoulder early in the first quarter against the Vikings on Sept. 29.

Chicago went 1–1 in Trubisky's absence. The Bears defeated the Vikings 16-6 to close September, but they lost to the Raiders 24-21 in London on Oct. 6. Backup QB Chase Daniel threw two picks against Oakland.

Trubisky struggled to kick off his third season in 2019. He threw for 228 yards on 45 attempts against the Packers in Week 1, and he threw for just 120 yards against the Broncos in Week 2. The North Carolina product posted an 11–3 record as a starter last season with 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

The Bears will host the Saints on Sunday. Kickoff from Soldier Field in Chicago is slated for 4:25 p.m. ET.
