After making it through the week with no setbacks, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is officially set to return to the starting lineup Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams.

"He put together three really good days in practice," head coach Matt Nagy told reporters Friday of Trubisky, who missed the last two games with a right (throwing) shoulder injury. "The velocity on his throws was good. His decision-making, just getting in and out of the huddle, that part was easy.

"The main thing was really seeing, conditioning-wise, can he hold up? And he did well."

Trubisky practiced in full all week after being limited all of last week. He told reporters on Wednesday that his "arm feels really good."

"Just throwing as much as they'll let me and taking care of it," Trubisky said. "I'm just making sure I'm 100 percent when I get back out there."

The Bears went 1-1 with veteran Chase Daniel starting in Trubisky's absence. Trubisky is 7-3 as a starter this season while throwing for 2,469 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Meanwhile, safety Eddie Jackson (shin) and rookie defensive tackle Bilal Nichols (knee) are questionable to face the Rams. Nagy told reporters Jackson sat out Friday's practice to get some rest as the team worked on artificial turf.

Safety Deon Bush (hamstring) is doubtful after missing practice all week.
