Chicago Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson reported that Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has gone through surgery to repair partially torn labrum in his left shoulder after the end of the regular season.
“Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky underwent surgery to repair the partially torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder shortly after the conclusion of the regular season. The typical recovery time for a minor procedure such as this is a couple of months.”
Trubisky dislocated his shoulder in week 4 playing against the Vikings and missed the next game against the Raiders. However, he continued playing in the season with the injury and waited until the season was over to make the surgery.
As stated the reporter, the recovery will take a couple of months. Bears GM Ryan Pace assured in December that Trubisky will still be the team’s first choice quarterback for the next season.
“Mitch is the starter and we believe in him and we believe in the progress he is going to continue to make.”
Although Trubisky is in the final year of his four-year contract, it is highly likely that the Bears will exercise Trubisky’s fifth-year option. It is also highly likely that the Bears will sign veterans to compete in the position.
