Roundup: Trubisky practicing step in 'right direction'

Mitchell Trubisky remains on pace to play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky remains day-to-day with a hip injury but had a good day of practice Wednesday.

Nagy added the light session was "a step in the right direction," and expected the signal-caller to practice fully Thursday.

Trubisky exited Sunday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams with a hip injury. Nagy said after the tilt that the QB hurt the hip earlier in the game and played through the pain before the staff ultimately held him out the final three-plus minutes.

Getting in full practices early in the week portends Trubisky starting this week against a porous Giants defense in what could be a get-right game for the struggling quarterback.
