NFL Media reported it's doubtful that Trubisky plays overseas this week against the Raiders, though the team expects to have a more definiteive timeline Monday about his availability for Week 7 against the Saints after the team's Week 6 bye.

After Sundays win over the Vikings, Bears coach Matt Nagy said he did not think Trubisky's injury was season-ending and that's exactly what we found out on Monday.

"I haven't found out a whole lot other than it's his shoulder, so I'll know more here probably the next day or two", Nagy told reporters after the game. He's not expected to play against Oakland in Week 5 in London, but should be back "sooner rather than later". After going to the locker room, the starter was quickly ruled out.

The Chicago Bears waived DL Abdullah Anderson on Monday, perhaps in order to create a roster spot for QB Tyler Bray, who now resides on the practice squad. Meanwhile, Chase Daniel stepped in for Chicago and continued what would be a 14-play drive that resulted in a Chicago touchdown and the early lead. If he's who ends up playing, then we feel very comfortable. We ran into this previous year, right? So I just - I feel comfortable, I know the other teammates feel comfortable with him as well.

Tight end Trey Burton and Cohen are among the team's emergency quarterback options.

Information from ESPN's Jeff Dickerson was used in this report.
