Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is sticking with what works, and in this case it’s a piece of compression gear. Apparently he’s a very superstitious fellow.
Trubisky confirmed on Wednesday that, for the second straight game, he intends to wear a compression sleeve on his right throwing arm when the Bears (3-1) face the Miami Dolphins (3-2) on Sunday.

“I had a little cut on my arm a few weeks ago, and then it reopened in Arizona [in Week 3] on the first drive and was just gushing everywhere,” Trubisky said. “And I didn’t want that to happen [against the Bucs], and I covered it up. And then you play pretty well, some superstition, call it what you want. I also got a lot of threats that I have to wear it, so …”
Trubisky completed 19 of 26 passes for 354 yards and zero interceptions against the Bucs. Trubisky’ s six touchdown passes are tied for the second most in a single game by a Bears quarterback in franchise history.
