Bears QB Mitch Trubisky's status unclear for game vs. Raiders in London


The Raiders had their concerns about this extended road trip. But suddenly, things are looking up for the Silver and Black.

Jon Gruden and Co. went into Indianapolis on Sunday and beat the Colts 31-24.

Now, the Raiders will head to London for a Week 5 "home game" against the Chicago Bears, who could be without their starting quarterback, Mitch Trubisky.

Trubisky left Sunday's game against the Vikings after landing on his left shoulder. He went into the locker room for observations and came back out with his left arm in a sling.

At the moment, Bears coach Matt Nagy isn't sure how serious Trubisky's injury is.

“That part is frustrating because he had a really good week of practice, and every week he's so excited to get back at it and really get this thing going,” Nagy told reporters via NBC Sports Chicago. “... I want the kid to do really well. How many plays was it, six? I'm sure that part is frustrating.”

The good news for Trubisky is that Nagy doesn't believe it's a season-ending injury.

Nagy acknowledged that the team will find out more on Trubisky’s status Monday or Tuesday.

If Trubisky can't play Sunday in London, the Bears will turn to backup Chase Daniels, who stepped in and completed 22 of 30 passes for 195 yards and one touchdown against Minnesota.

The Raiders have a chance to come home from London with a 3-2 record, so they could be hoping the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft is forced to miss the game.
