Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky had a scary fall during Sunday's game. The third-year player landed awkwardly in the midst of a tackle, falling directly on his side with his arm stretched out in front of him. The fall caused Trubisky to miss the rest of the contest.

The Bears QB underwent an MRI on Monday morning. According to a report, Trubisky suffered a dislocated left shoulder with a slight labrum tear.

Luckily, the injury will not require surgery as Adam Schefter reports. Trubisky is even going to travel with the team this upcoming Sunday. But he is not likely to play.

It's also good to hear that Trubisky will be back "sooner rather than later."

The former UNC QB hasn't had a strong statistical start to the season. But the team is 3-1, second place in the NFC North division. Trubisky's thrown for 588 yards and three touchdowns this season.

As fans saw on Sunday, Chase Daniel is expected to start while Trubisky is out. The veteran QB completed 22-of-30 passes for 195 yards and one touchdown on Sunday. The Bears beat the Vikings 16-6.

Daniel's performance has folks in Chicago believing in the 32-year old. Can he put together another win this upcoming Sunday?

Chicago travels to London this week to face the Raiders.
