(670 The Score) Bears backup quarterback Mitchell Trubisky suffered a right shoulder injury in a loss to the Saints on Sunday in his lone snap since being benched in late September.

The Bears on Wednesday afternoon were uncertain of the extent of Trubisky's injury after he was held out of practice. Tyler Bray would serve as the Bears' backup quarterback behind starter Nick Foles should Trubisky be forced to miss time.

"It's unfortunate, and I know that he's bummed out," coach Matt Nagy said of Trubisky.

Trubisky was benched in favor of Foles during Chicago's win in Atlanta on Sept. 27. He has been active for each of the team's five games since, but last Sunday marked Trubisky's first action since being benched -- with the Bears bringing him in for Foles to run a designed carry to the left that went for three yards. The injury occurred as Trubisky's right shoulder struck the ground, Nagy said.

Trubisky, 26, also dealt with an injury to his right shoulder in 2018. He missed parts of three games in 2019 with an injury to his left shoulder, which was surgically repaired this past offseason.

Quarterbacks Jake Rudock and Kyle Sloter will be brought in for workouts with the Bears, according to the NFL's transaction wire.

Beyond Trubisky, the Bears have a long list of injuries. They practiced Wednesday without safety Eddie Jackson (knee), center Cody Whitehair (calf), tight end Jimmy Graham (knee/hamstring), defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris (shoulder), center Sam Mustipher (knee), receiver Anthony Miller (toe) and nose tackle John Jenkins (ankle). Safety Tashaun Gipson (toe) was limited.

The Bears (5-3) visit the Tennessee Titans (5-2) on Sunday in Nashville.
