Bears’ Trubisky off injury report
Quarterback to start Sunday night against the Rams.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears removed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky from their injury list Friday, clearing the way for a start Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams.
“Well, he put together three really good days in practice,” coach Matt Nagy said. “I thought the velocity on his throws was good, his decision making just getting in and out of the huddle, that part was easy.
“The main thing was for us, seeing conditioning-wise, being able to see can he hold up with that, and he did. He did well.”
Nagy said there should be no limitations on Trubisky, who missed the last two games with a right shoulder injury.
“We’re going to play our offense and we’re going to do what he does and then there’s some things that we may — depending on what we feel like — but for the most part we’re not pulling back in any regards,” Nagy said.
At Florham Park, N.J., New York’s starting quarterback against the Buffalo Bills is ... still to be determined.
All signs indicate it will be rookie Sam Darnold under center after he was a full participant at practice all week following missing three games with a strained right foot. Coach Todd Bowles declined, however, to announce Friday whether it will be Darnold or Josh Mccown.
“We’ll decide that on Sunday,” Bowles said. “Between him and Josh, they both had good weeks.”
If Darnold plays, it would be his first game action since being injured against Miami on Nov. 4. Darnold was replaced the last three games by Mccown, who had one touchdown pass and four interceptions while the Jets went 0-3.
Mccown fully participated in practice Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday by a sore back.
■ Jets linebacker Darron Lee has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating its substance abuse policy.
The league announced the suspension Friday, a few hours after the Jets completed their last full practice before leaving for Buffalo to play the Bills on Sunday.
The suspension begins immediately, meaning Lee will sit out the team’s final four games of the season.
The 24-year-old Lee was having his best season since being drafted 20th overall in 2016 out of Ohio State. He ranked second on the Jets in total tackles with 99 and his three interceptions were tied for the league lead among linebackers.
