LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears remain committed to Mitchell Trubisky as their starting quarterback despite his struggles this season. General manager Ryan Pace stopped short of saying the Bears will exercise their fifth-year option on Trubisky. He also did not rule out bringing in an experienced veteran who could push for the starting job. But after an 8-8 season, the Bears fired offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich and three other assistants this week.
