Daniel replaces the injured Mitchell Trubisky, who will not be able to play. He is dealing with a shoulder injury.

As a starter, he is 1-1. Both of his starts have come with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He had a win in 2014. The loss came in 2013.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Trubisky woke up sore on Wednesday. He was dealing with “less movement in his shoulder than expected.”

Trubisky will not dress for the game. The Bears activated Tyler Bray off of the practice squad to be the backup quarterback.

Schefter reported on Wednesday that Trubisky is dealing with an AC sprain in his throwing shoulder. He also reported that the signal-caller did not suffer a labrum injury. 

He was injured on a late hit by Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith near the conclusion of the fourth quarter in Sunday’s game. He was injured in the Bears 25-20 win over the Vikings. 

The 24-year-old Mentor, Ohio native Trubisky has gone 210 of 321 for 2,469 yards. He has 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

The 32-year-old Irving, Texas native has appeared in three games this season. However, he has not attempted a pass. He has five carries for -5 yards.
