Trubisky keeping arm sleeve on after 6-TD performance

Mitchell Trubisky's arm sleeve and all of its mystical powers are here to stay.

The Chicago Bears quarterback said on Wednesday that he'll keep wearing the accessory after firing six touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 30 in a career-best game.

"I'm going to keep it on," Trubisky said, via ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. "We'll see what the color is. But it feels comfortable, gives me a little more swag or whatever. Just go out there and do your thing with the arm sleeve."

In a black sleeve two weeks ago, Trubisky threw for 354 yards and six scores against the Bucs while completing 19 of his 26 pass attempts. The Bears were on a bye last week, and they return to action Sunday on the road against the Miami Dolphins.

The second-year pivot initially wore the sleeve to prevent a cut on his arm from reopening. Teammates have jokingly said he can't take the sleeve off.
