An unprecedented quick turnaround between the Bears' two games - the shortest game week of any team this season - could complicate matters.
There's nothing to indicate that the injury is serious, and Trubisky and head coach Matt Nagy will be available to address the issue with the media on Tuesday.
The Vikings are now 5-4-1 on the season, which puts them in a precarious spot with about six other teams who will likely be vying for a wild-card spot (assuming the Bears hold onto the division lead). He passed for only 165 yards against Minnesota, hitting 20-of-31 passes, with that one touchdown and two interceptions. "When you stick together through the highs and the lows and you work as hard as our guys do together and you listen to the coaches and the coaches listen to the players - there's a collaboration - you then get a chance to be in a situation like this tonight, to play in front of the whole world". On the flip side, Minnesota left the door open for questions about its ability to win a prime-time game, which it has yet to do in three tries this season.
Cody Parkey hit all three of his field goals, including a 48-yarder that effectively sealed the Bears' win.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff and Saints quarterback Drew Brees look unstoppable at the moment, but if any defense can stop them - or at least slow them down - it's the Bears.
"Either they're not listening or not paying attention or they don't really care", he said. That turned the Vikings' offense into a one-dimensional group, and Hicks was able to drop Kirk Cousins for a sack, too.
Parkey shook off a performance unlike any other by making all three of his field goal attempts. Heck of a team we played against. "There was never a doubt". He was big-time tonight. "They were crucial and he did a heck of a job".
Akiem Hicks had five tackles for a loss and he, Eddie Goldman and Bilal Nichols were critical in holding Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray to a combined 17 yards on 13 carries.
"It was a balance at times", Cousins said. Chicago TV stations even sent helicopters to shoot footage when he practiced at Soldier Field on Wednesday night. "They weren't necessarily getting a sack, but they were affecting my arm". And then in the fourth quarter, he fortunately got away with a bad pass that could have - should have - been a pick-six.
Cousins said the defeat "certainly humbles you", a potential positive to take in preparation for the next game against the rival Green Bay Packers (4-5-1). Sometimes it was a rush around the edge, it was a rush inside, it was a game, a stunt. It was a promising start for a kicker lampooned by Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show". But more than anything, the fact that these mistakes - especially turnovers in the red zone - keep happening are "definitely" a cause for concern for Zimmer.
Synopsis: On the Bears first drive, they were immediately presented with a 3 and 7. Great coaches, great players. But with Leonard Floyd bearing down on him, Cousins unleashed a wobbly heave that Adrian Amos picked off with on one else near him.
Synopsis: After the Bears took the lead, the Vikings quickly found themselves on the Bears' side of the field.
Bears: LB Aaron Lynch and TE Adam Shaheen both left the game with concussions.
