And beyond that, he is starting the game for Buffalo.
This is just the preseason but plenty of Bears fans may want to boo Trubisky for some reason.
Current Bears running back Tarik Cohen made it clear what he thinks of anyone planning to do that.
With Josh Allen out, Mitch Trubisky will start for the Bills Saturday against Chicago.

A lame and a weirdo is a perfect way to describe someone booing the team’s former signal-caller in a preseason game.
Why Cohen Is Right
It is fair to be upset in Chicago with the way Trubisky’s career went.
But it’s not like he personally showed up with false promises.
GM Ryan Pace and the Bears front office decided to trade up to take him with the No. 2 overall pick in 2017.
He clearly was not worthy of such a draft slot, yet he still quarterbacked the team to the playoffs on two occasions.
If not for a Cody Parkey double-doink, his story in Chicago may still be ongoing.
There is no reason to boo Trubisky and really no reason to cheer for him either.
He is gone and Justin Fields is the new supposed savior in town.
Justin Fields and Mitch Trubisky are both currently trending
I love Chicago Bears fans 🤣😂 pic.twitter.com/1f2imAv2Jb

A polite golf clap may be the most appropriate thing to do.
Bears Fans Must Move Forward
The Trubisky tenure did not work out and that should fall on the shoulders of Pace.
He seemingly righted his wrongs by drafting Fields this year, yet fans are still witnessing a scenario where a veteran in Andy Dalton is the starter for now.
If Dalton falters at all, Pace and Matt Nagy could be out of a job if they don’t decide to have Fields come in and save the day.
Hope in the form of a new quarterback is always great for a franchise.
However, Fields has proven nothing yet and just because he is new does not mean he will ultimately have a different outcome from Trubisky.
Booing the former No. 2 overall pick will likely happen because, well, this is the NFL.
All he can do is put his head down and get to work.
If he can one day be a successful starter again, fans in Chicago will be wondering what exactly was going on with Nagy and the offense.
It is good to see Cohen sticking up for his former teammate and it is clear Trubisky left on good terms, at least with his teammates.
