What’s October without a little superstition?
Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on Wednesday confirmed he intends to wear a compression sleeve on his right throwing arm for the second straight game Sunday when Chicago visits Miami.
“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, via ESPN . “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 threw a career-best six touchdowns in Chicago’s Week 4 win over the Buccaneers, completing 19-of-26 passes for 354 yards and zero interceptions. The second-year signal caller hopes to have another big outing with a little help from his good luck charm.
“I’m going to keep it on,” Trubisky said. “We’ll see what the color is. But it feels comfortable, gives me a little more swag or whatever. Just go out there and do your thing with the arm sleeve. So we’ll see.”
The Dolphins (3-2) are slated to host the Bears (3-1) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
