Trubisky woke up with soreness and had less movement in his injured right shoulder than the team expected Wednesday morning.

Trubisky, 24, is officially listed as doubtful for the game.  He has an AC sprain in his throwing shoulder and not a labrum issue, a source told Schefter.

Books seem unfazed by the news, moving the line a mere one point in Detroit's favor to +2.5.  The betting public is leaning on Chicago at a 60% clip with the line at -3.

The Bears believe that Trubinsky will be ready to play in Week 13 against the Giants.
