Who will start for the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday night?

On Monday, Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he'll have to get back to the rest of the world -- including the division-leading Green Bay Packers -- with that answer.

Coming out of a bye week that began with a loss to the Minnesota Vikings on "Monday Night Football," the Bears are taking stock of the health status of their quarterbacks, Nagy said.

Nick Foles injured his hip on the final series of the Week 10 home loss to the Vikings. Mitchell Trubisky, who started for the Bears to begin the season, has been out with a shoulder injury.

Nagy said the team is "working through" the situation and keeping its options open for Sunday night's visit to Green Bay. Nagy said a change at quarterback remains "on the table."

The Bears won't issue an official injury report until Wednesday. Neither quarterback is scheduled to meet with the media via video conference until Wednesday night.

The Packers (7-3) lost to the Colts in overtime at Indianapolis on Sunday but maintain a comfortable lead over the Bears (5-5) in the division. The teams are scheduled to meet in Chicago in the regular-season finale on Jan. 3.

Chicago has lost four games in a row and Foles has been sacked 14 times during that span.

Against Minnesota, Foles completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 106 yards and posted a 51.1 passer rating.

Trubisky was benched three games into the regular season after Foles came off the bench to guide a comeback win at Atlanta on Sept. 27. Trubisky hasn't practiced since Week 8, Nagy said, due to shoulder discomfort.
