Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy said on Monday that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has a right hip pointer injury and his decision to remove him from Sunday night's game "has nothing to do with his playing" ,
The coach said Trubisky had the injury on a sack at the end of the second quarter in a 17-7 defeat on Sunday night against the Rams.
Nagy on Monday wrote Trubisky his hardness and said the quarterback wanted to stay in the game – but he added that with Trubisky, sometimes he has to "protect him from himself". Nagy told reporters that he was aware of his quarterback injury at half time and that it did not become a problem until his hip contracted in the fourth quarter.
Nagy was seen crouching with Trubisky on the sidelines when he was removed Sunday night. The coach was asked on Monday what he said to his quarterback.
"I wanted him to hear from me that he must be brutally honest with me about his pain and where he's staying," Nagy said. "I sat there and said to him," We appreciate your tenacity, we appreciate that you are as tough as possible and want to stay in the game, but I have to be able to make a decision. "1
"It was completely based on his injury and where he was at, "he said.
Trubisky finished the night 24-of-43 over 190 yards, a landing and interception (65.1 Passer rating) before Nagy partnered with the veteran Backup Chase Daniel went on Chicago's last offensive.  Regarding Trubisky's status for this week, Nagy said, "We're working on it." The Bears are hosting the New York Giants on Sunday.
Nagy said that Trubisky's start quarterback will stay if he is healthy.
Trubisky – the second choice of the NFL Draft in 2017 – has passed just 1,390 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions this season.
