(670 The Score) Mitchell Trubisky has retained his job as the Bears’ starting quarterback.

Chicago is set to officially name Trubisky as its starter in the coming days, a source confirmed to Chris Emma of 670 The Score on Friday evening. Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the news, which came after Trubisky and Nick Foles competed for the job throughout a training camp that featured no preseason games and which got a late start with on-field work due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trubisky, 26, has started 41 games for the Bears over the last three seasons, but he struggled in 2019, when his 41.5 QBR rated 28th of the 30 qualifying quarterbacks, according to ESPN. He threw for 3,138 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions as Chicago disappointed in going 8-8.

The Bears acquired Foles from the Jaguars in March to compete with Trubisky. Chicago opens its season at Detroit on Sept. 13. Trubisky has had great success against the Lions in his career, compiling a 106.3 passer rating in five games against Detroit.
