Trubisky is finding ways to get reps

As of right now, training camp is supposed to be on schedule, according to Roger Goodell, while the preseason has been cut to two games. For a team with a lot of new faces that are trying to figure out its identity, this can be a tough situation, as this means less time to prepare for the regular season.

With what Mitchell Trubisky has done so far in the offseason, it would be safe to say that the more practice with his teammates the better, as they could use all the time they can get to know each other on offense. Trubisky won’t have a lot of playing time in the preseason, so getting reps in with his receivers and backs can go a long way to offset the damage that two fewer preseason games will do.

The coaches will be looking for readiness and vast improvement come training camp. Trubisky knows this and is working now to make sure he is ready for that competition. With a shortened preseason, training camp will be a big factor in deciding who makes the roster and who gets playing time.

The way Trubisky has approached this offseason could mean that even without a full preseason, the Bears can still improve due to extra work in the offseason.
