Mentor Native Mitchell Trubisky To Make First NFL Start For Chicago Bears In Week 5

The Mitchell Trubisky era begins this week for the Chicago Bears. The Mentor, Ohio native and number two overall pick will make his first NFL regular season start at quarterback on national television on October 9.

The Bears take on their NFC North division rivals, the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field. Head coach John Fox makes the change after veteran Mike Glennon struggled in the teams first four games.

Trubisky will be the third of the top four rookie quarterbacks to start an NFL game this season. Trubisky joins Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans and DeShone Kizer of the Browns in the rookie class of 2017 to start at quarterback in their rookie season.

Chicago traded up one spot to select Trubisky with the second overall pick in April’s NFL Draft. Trubisky was named ‘Mr. Football’ in the state of Ohio back in 2012.
