Which NFL Teams Always Play on Thanksgiving?

Which NFL Teams Always Play on Thanksgiving?

Chase Daniel promises to be ready to step in at quarterback for Mitchell Trubisky on Thursday when the Chicago Bears play the Detroit Lions.

Washington is 6-4 and leads the NFC East but travels to Dallas without Alex Smith, who suffered a season-ending injury on Sunday.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said the injury would prevent Trubisky from practicing Tuesday, and the team does not have a practice on Wednesday.

Daniel hasn't started or played extensively in an National Football League game since 2014, and might start for Trubisky because of a right shoulder injury sustained in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's 25-20 Bears victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Running back Chris Thompson is also listed as out as he continues to recover from a rib injury for Week 12's Thanksgiving Day contest.

More than that, right now Trubisky is the franchise, and a more serious injury to his throwing shoulder could undo most or all of what the Bears have accomplished in their great start to Nagy's inaugural campaign. But it's a day-to-day thing for us, like I said. "I know that. And for us, we got to make sure in these situations that we're doing the right thing".

Graham has 34 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns this season. Trubisky is dealing with a shoulder bruise and if it was a Sunday game, he'd probably play. "But I felt very comfortable today calling plays with Chase". However, Daniel spent several years working with Nagy when he was the quarterbacks coach with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He started in all 15 games in which he played last season, and started all three playoff games in the Eagles' run to winning the Super Bowl.

Trubisky has been known to use his legs to hurt defenses, and it appeared the quarterback hurt his shoulder after he attempted to slide to avoid contact against the Vikings. The two-time MVP has registered 19 touchdowns and just one interception in 10 games.

"They're not that significantly different", Helfrich said.

"Everyone in this locker room knew what he was going to do, and he didn't let us down", Mizzell said.
