Earlier: The Chicago Bears are in a dogfight against the Minnesota Vikings today. Unfortunately, it looks like they may have to go a big portion of the game without starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

On the Bears' opening drive, Trubisky got strip-tackled outside the box by a Vikings player. But after the play was over, Trubisky struggled to get up.

Trubisky wound up needing to go to the sidelines with an arm injury. He has since been replaced by backup quarterback Chase Daniel.

You can see the play where Trubisky got injured here:

Trubisky struggled in his first two games of the season against the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos. But he seemed to return to Pro Bowl form in their win over Washington last week. Fortunately for the Bears, Daniel was able to drive the team down the field and cap it off with a touchdown pass to Tarik Cohen. Nevertheless, Chicago will want to get a healthy diagnosis from Trubisky as quickly as possible. Chicago leads 7-0 with 7:54 remaining in the first quarter. The game is being played on CBS. UPDATE: The Chicago Bears have reportedly already ruled quarterback Mitch Trubisky OUT for the remainder of the game.

UPDATE: Trubisky is back on the sideline with his arm in a sling.

Not a great look.
