Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky seeks second opinion on injured right shoulder

The Bears are still awaiting details on Trubisky's injured throwing shoulder.

(670 The Score) Bears backup quarterback Mitchell Trubisky traveled to Los Angeles for a second opinion on his injured right shoulder, coach Matt Nagy confirmed Thursday.

The second opinion was conducted by respected orthopedic surgeron Dr. Neal ElAttrache, as NFL Media first reported. The Bears were still awaiting details on Trubisky's appointment as of late Thursday afternoon, Nagy said.

"We'll be kind of working through that," Nagy said. "That kind of goes hand in hand with knowing whether or not we see him as far as the upcoming games and season.

"I'm sure he's got a lot going through right now his mind as to where he's at. That's something we've got to definitely look into and see how he's doing."

Trubisky suffered the injury during a loss to the Saints on Sunday while rushing on a designed carry. It was Trubisky's first play since he was benched in favor of Nick Foles in Chicago's game at Atlanta on Sept. 27. Foles has been starting since.

The Bears haven't yet placed Trubisky on injured reserve. On the injury report, he was listed as not practicing this week.
