According to NFL Network, Mitch Trubisky will not play vs NY Giants.
It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, but Mitch Trubisky appears set to stay on the sidelines for another week.
After Trubisky was a surprise addition to the injury report on the Monday following the Minnesota Vikings game, it was quickly learned that he sustained a shoulder injury thanks to a late hit from Harrison Smith. That injury would put Trubisky on the shelf for the Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions and perhaps longer.
At this point, it appears longer is in fact the case.
This report surfaced this morning from Mike Garafolo:
Diving deeper into this story and it appears that Trubisky is doing better than he was last week and that he could play this week but the Bears are taking a more conservative approach to his recovery.

Trubisky appears to be desperate to get back onto the field but Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy have the bigger picture in focus and want to make sure Trubisky is healthy and don’t want to risk him aggravating his shoulder injury down the stretch.
Chase Daniel proved to be able to run the offense competently against the Lions. He wasn’t spectacular, but he was efficient enough and showed why the Bears invested in him as their QB2 in the off-season.
Even with the news that Daniel will most likely be starting this weekend, the Bears are holding as a 4.5 point favorite against the New York Giants on the road.
The boys in Vegas are showing complete confidence in Daniel for this game so there’s no reason that Bears fans should feel any differently.
Week 14 the Bears will be welcoming the Los Angeles Rams to Soldier Field. Expect Trubisky back for that game in what should be a really fun game on Sunday Night Football.
