Chicago has made a change at quarterback.
The Mike Glennon, starting QB, era in Chicago is reportedly coming to an end.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Bears are benching the veteran quarterback and will go with rookie Mitchell Trubisky moving forward.
Trubisky, a rookie out of North Carolina, was the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Mitchell Trubisky now will start his first NFL game one week from tonight vs. the Vikings.

Glennon has thrown for 833 yards, 4 touchdowns and 5 interceptions through four games, completing 66 percent of his passes. The Bears have gone 1-3 in those games.
The 27-year-old quarterback signed a three-year, $45 million deal with Chicago this offseason, though only about $19 million of it was guaranteed.
Bears’ head coach John Fox had said after the team’s most-recent game, a loss to Green Bay, that a change was possible.
“We need to make a lot of changes,” Fox told reporters after the loss. “We will evaluate everything, and we’ve got a lot of work to do before we line up against Minnesota. We are going to look at everything.”
Trubisky threw for 369 yards and 3 touchdowns during the preseason.
The Bears are set to play the Vikings on ESPN’s Monday Night Football a week from today.
