Bears coach sees signs of Trubisky's improvement

(TSX / STATS) -- LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Two plays in particular Sunday showed Chicago Bears head coach John Fox the advancement quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has made since preseason began.

One was buying time to find Kendall Wright and put the Bears in field-goal range in overtime. The other wasn't even a completion; it was Trubisky quickly picking up a bad Cody Whitehair snap in the end zone, stepping outside the tackle box and throwing away a pass. In fact, Trubisky had eight incompletions Sunday, and six were passes he threw away to avoid trouble.

"Those are really good decisions," Fox said. "It beats six interceptions, for sure."
