CHICAGO — Chicago Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy didn’t have much of an update on Mitch Trubisky’s injured left shoulder, but said Chase Daniel will likely start Sunday for the Bears when they face the Raiders in London. Nagy characterized Trubisky as “day-to-day.”

Nagy also said linebacker Roquan Smith would be a full participant at practice on Wednesday but would not say if he would play Sunday and Nagy continued to call Smith’s absence from Sunday’s game a personal matter.

Later, the Bears tweeted: “Roquan Smith says the personal issue is behind him, he’s focused on moving forward, excited to get back out on the practice field today and looking forward to playing in London.”

The Bears also tweeted that Smith is appreciated of the “big time” support he’s received from his teammates and team management.
