Fresh off a big win over the rival Minnesota Vikings, the Chicago Bears have to travel to play the Detroit Lions on a short week on Thanksgiving. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's status for the game is uncertain.

Trubisky suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday night's win over Minnesota, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Fortunately, it doesn't seem like a serious issue for the second-year pro.

In fact, according to Schefter, the Bears are optimistic they will have Trubisky on Thursday.

Trubisky is the only Chicago quarterback to throw a pass this season. If he can't play, Chase Daniel will get the start.

This season, Trubisky has completed 65.4 percent of his passes for 2,469 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He is also second on the team in rushing yards (363) and rushing touchdowns (three).

Chicago is 7-3, ahead of the second-place Vikings (5-4-1) in the NFC North.

The Bears and Lions will kick off at 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday on CBS.
