While Matt Nagy has been steering clear of naming a starting quarterback for Sunday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers, it’s been clear that Mitchell Trubisky will be lining up under center for the Chicago Bears.

Nagy finally confirmed that Trubisky will be the starter following Friday’s practice.

Trubisky was a full participant all week while Nick Foles hasn’t practiced due to a hip injury. Foles was listed as doubtful for Sunday, which confirmed that Trubisky will in fact get the start.

Trubisky last started in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, where he was benched in the third quarter following a costly interception. He was 3-0 as a starter, although technically he didn’t lead the Bears to a win over the Falcons.

Foles has served as the starter for the last seven games, where the Bears have gone 2-5. While Foles’ injury serves as a clear path for Trubisky’s return, Nagy hadn’t ruled out a change at quarterback due to performance in Chicago’s four-game losing streak.
