It's football... you can't bubble wrap your QB for important games. To me, this is an important game.
I agree, it’s seems like this is Nagy’s philosophy with injuries. At the first sign of injury, rest for 2 weeks. That would be fine if this was baseball but the season is short. The bears got lucky the schedule was favorable in the weeks Mack and AR rested.
When the reports came out Tru’s shoulder injury wasn’t serious and he would play if it was a Sunday game, I just kinda shook my head. Now they’re doubling down and saying it’s not serious and he has full ROM, but he probably won’t play, is a head scratcher. The bears can’t afford to sit their star players because they got boo boos. These are conference and divisional games. I hope this week is just Nagy playing head games making the giants prepare for both QB’s instead of one.
Hicks showed up on the injur report with an Achilles. If he doesn’t go, Barkley could put up some yardage.
