It's Mitch time!

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubiskey has been officially named the starting quarterback for Sunday night's game against the rival Green Bay Packers.

"Yeah, Mitch is going to be our starter," Bears head coach Matt Nagy told reporters on Friday. "He's starting for Green Bay."

"We’re excited that Mitch is ready and it’s an opportunity for him."

Nagy wouldn't comment on whether Trubisky would be the starter for the rest of the season or just until Nick Foles is back 100 percent healthy. Foles is currently listed as doubtful with a hip injury that he suffered against the Vikings.

For the season, Trubisky threw for 560 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions. This will be Trubisky's first start since Week 3 against the Falcons.

In other roster news, Nagy shared that Akiem Hicks and Charles Leno Jr. will be a game time decision on Sunday night.
