Lions vs. Bears Week 10 Scouting Report: Mitchell Trubisky struggling
2 players to watch for the Lions
J.D. McKissic – As the Lions’ run game continues to slog through a rough 2019 season, they may want to give McKissic more opportunities; he is averaging 7.0 yards per attempt on his 20 rushing attempts.
His 5-10, 195-pound frame is clearly not built for a heavy workload toting the ball, but practically every other option has yielded meager results in the wake of starter Kerryon Johnson‘s knee injury. The Bears’ run defense has regressed this season, and this Sunday could be a good opportunity for McKissic to assert himself as the Lions’ best option in the backfield.
Justin Coleman – The Lions’ nickel corner has had a rough go of it the last three weeks, including getting beaten by Raiders rookie receiver Hunter Renfrow for the eventual game-winning touchdown last Sunday.
The Bears’ passing offense is one of the league’s weakest, and Coleman could use a strong performance (likely matched up with speedy wideout Taylor Gabriel) to get back on track after his strong start to the season has started to head south.
