LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was officially listed as limited in practice Wednesday, the team revealed. He was seen on the field during the portion of practice open to the media but did not throw a football in that time.

Trubisky is still considered day-to-day with a right shoulder injury that kept him out of the Bears' win against the Lions last Thursday. The Bears haven't deemed the injury to be of the long-term variety, though they're continuing to be cautious with Trubisky. Coach Matt Nagy had indicated prior to Wednesday's practice that Trubisky would likely be held out of work, though it remains to be seen what he accomplished in that limited work.

Backup quarterback Chase Daniel is in line to start for a second straight game if Trubisky is unable to play against the Giants on Sunday. It remains to be seen what Trubisky would have to do in order to take the field this week. Of course, the first and most important step would be throwing once again.

"I definitely think his arrow is up right now," Nagy said of Trubisky's health.

Trubisky suffered the shoulder injury during the Bears' win against the Vikings on Nov. 18 on a hit from Minnesota safety Harrison Smith late in the fourth quarter. His right shoulder was buried into the ground, which caused the injury.

Daniel started led the Bears to a 23-16 victory against the Lions, finishing 27-of-37 for 230 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. It marked his first start since 2014.

Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks was held out of practice because of an Achilles injury, the extent of which is unknown. Running back Benny Cunningham (ankle) and cornerback Sherrick McManis (ankle) also did not practice. Linebacker Aaron Lynch and tight end Adam Shaheen both returned as full participants after missing last week with a concussion.

Nagy was not available to address the Bears' injury report after practice but will be questioned on the details Thursday morning at Halas Hall.
