After four weeks on the bench, former North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will get his first NFL regular-season snaps next week.
Trubisky will start for the 1-3 Chicago Bears next Monday night, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dan Graziano.

Trubisky will be going up against the Minnesota Vikings, who have allowed just 19 points per game this season, on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. It’ll be a tough test for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. Fortunately, the Bears had a mini-bye week, as they played last Thursday against the Green Bay Packers. This gives Trubisky almost 11 days to prepare for his first career start.
If one is not familiar with the situation, here is how the former Tar Heel got to this point.
