The Chicago Bears have been without starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in each of the last two games. While it’s been expected that the second-year player would return from a shoulder injury Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams, it’s still unknown who will be under center for Chicago at Soldier Field in Week 14.

Bears head coach Matt Nagy was not ready to name a starting quarterback Wednesday. If Trubisky is forced to sit, Chase Daniel will get his third straight start.

Trubisky is confident he’ll play.

Chicago has gone 1-1 without Trubisky. They defeated the Detroit Lions 23-16 on Thanksgiving. The Bears came up short on the road against the New York Giants last week, losing 30-27 in overtime.

Daniel played well in his first start, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns, though it took a pick-six by Eddie Jackson to put Chicago ahead in the fourth quarter. He wasn’t nearly as effective in Week 13 when he posted a 75.3 passer rating with two picks, including one that was returned for a touchdown.

The Bears have a 7-3 record with Trubisky as the starter. The former No.2 overall pick has a 97.7 passer rating with 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Even though they are returning home, the Bears will face a tougher test Sunday than they had in the previous two weeks. The Rams' only loss of the season came on the road against the New Orleans Saints, and they are tied as the No.1 scoring offense in the NFC.

A win would go a long way in securing the NFC North title for Chicago. They’ve got a 1.5-game lead over the Minnesota Vikings in the division. The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions are virtually out of contention.
