Trubisky and the Bears went from 12-4 in 2018 to 8-8 in 2019. They missed the playoffs after winning the NFC North during the previous season.
He missed one game in 2019 due to a hip pointer injury. In his 15 games he threw for 3,138 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for two touchdowns and fumbled five times on the season. While missing two games in 2018, he had 24 touchdowns to 12 interceptions.
As stated above, the surgery was on his non-throwing arm. He should be ready to start in the first game of the 2020 season. The Bears and Trubisky will attempt to get back on top of the NFC North against a yet-undetermined opponent.
