(670 The Score) Bears quarterback Nick Foles remained sidelined with a hip injury Thursday, continuing to put his status in doubt for Chicago's game at Green Bay on Sunday night.

Should Foles be unable to play, the Bears would start Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback for the first time since he was benched during a game on Sept. 27. Coach Matt Nagy has declined to name a starter until Foles is deemed healthy.

"In regards to where Nick's at, it's still day-to-day," Nagy said Thursday.

Foles suffered the hip injury during the Bears' loss to the Vikings on Nov. 16, when he was carted off the field after taking a big hit late in the game. Third-stringer Tyler Bray took over at quarterback for Foles, as Trubisky was still dealing with a right shoulder injury at the time. Trubisky has since been cleared and is practicing in full this week.

Foles, 31, has completed 65% of his passes for 1,852 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions in eight games this season. The Bears are 2-5 since he was named the starter.

Trubisky, 26, is playing the final season of his initial rookie contract and is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2021. He has completed 59.3% of his passes for 560 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Bears were also missing star defensive lineman Akiem Hicks in practice Thursday due to a hamstring injury.

Hicks, 31, played in just five games last season while dealing with multiple injuries. He has played in each of the Bears' 10 contests this season. Offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. (toe) didn't practice Thursday after working as a full participant Wednesday.
