After a 1-3 start, the #Chicago Bears will be making a quarterback change, benching veteran #Mike Glennon for No. 2 overall pick #Mitchell Trubisky. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider said Bears head coach John Fox made the decision days after their 35-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers Thursday. ESPN first reported the move while the Bears later confirmed the change in signal-caller. In four games as the starter, Glennon completed 93 of 140 passes for 833 yards and four touchdowns with five interceptions. Against the Packers, Glennon threw two interceptions.

The Bears signed Glennon to a three-year deal worth $45 million, including $18.5 million in guaranteed money, despite playing as the backup to Jameis Winston the past two years.

The Bears then surprised almost everyone when they moved up from No. 3 to No. 2 in the NFL Draft to take Trubisky. The Bears shipped their No. 3 overall pick, a third-round pick and a fourth-round pick in 2017 and an additional third-round pick in the 2018 draft to the San Francisco 49ers to get Trubisky.

Trubisky now gets his chance to start

However, the Bears decided not to start Trubisky immediately due to concerns about his lack of experience as a starter at UNC. After serving as the backup to Marquise Williams for two years, Trubisky finally got his chance to start last season. In 13 games, he threw for 3,748 passing yards and 30 touchdowns with six interceptions and added 308 rushing yards and five touchdowns. In the preseason, Trubisky showed fans a glimpse of his potential, going 36-of-53 passing for 364 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions.

Vikings running back out for season

Meanwhile, the Vikings will be playing the rest of the season without their top rusher, rookie Dalvin Cook, who suffered a torn ACL during their 14-7 loss to the Detroit Lions. Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed that Cook suffered the season-ending injury, which came after he tumbled to the turf after a non-contact play early in the third period. "I expect him to come back and be the same that he was," Zimmer said of Cook, who led the team in rushing with 354 yards on 74 carries with two touchdowns. He also caught 11 passes for 90 yards. With Cook out for the season, the Vikings are hoping that Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon to fill the void left by the second-round pick out of Florida State. The Vikings are currently 17th in the league in rushing yards with 108.0 per game.
