Bears declare open competition between Trubisky, Foles

UNDATED (AP) — The Chicago Bears declared the quarterback competition between Mitchell Trubisky and newcomer Nick Foles an open one on Friday. General manager Ryan Pace made that clear during a conference call, saying both players are “embracing” the battle that will play out whenever offseason workouts begin. Coach Matt Nagy stressed that Trubisky will be the first quarterback on the field whenever practices begin. But he planned to give Trubisky and Foles equal time with the starters. He also said both will play in the preseason as part of the evaluation.
