Last week the Chicago Bears were able to beat the Detroit Lions on the road without the services of QB Mitch Trubisky. With a game against the New York Giants coming up this week, the Bears are hopeful that their star quaurterback can recover in time.

Unfortunately for the Bears, Trubisky's return is not necessarily imminent. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Trubisky was limited in practice on Wednesday.

The team also announced on Wednesday afternoon that Trubisky's status for the Giants game was still "to be determined."

"It's going to continue to be one of those day-to-day things with him," said coach Matt Nagy. "I don't know his exact pain tolerance or level right now. But I definitely think his arrow's up right now and we'll just have to kind of keep communicating with him on a day-to-day basis as to where he's at, how he feels."

Should Trubisky be sidelined again, backup QB Chase Daniel will start again.

Daniel was more than serviceable for the Bears in their win over the Lions, going 27-for-37 with 230 passing yards and two TDs.

The Bears are 8-3 with a 2.5 game lead over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North title race. If the playoffs started today, the Bears would be the No. 3 overall seed.
