Howard sustained foot and ankle injuries on a fourth-quarter play Sunday in a loss to the New York Giants. So regardless, there's not a lot you can do.
Trubisky will sit out on Thanksgiving, and Chase Daniel is getting a spot start in his place.
The coach says it is possible that Trubisky could play against the Lions without practicing all week.
Unlike Ryan Wilson (who once again picked both teams), I'll pick one team to win: the Vikings. "So we know what each other likes and I think we can just roll".
"We'll have some time after the Detroit game", Nagy said.
So when Thursday's game kicks off around 12:30 p.m. local time, Chicago will have had about 3½ days since the end of its previous game.
Nagy said the plan is to treat the Trubisky injury exactly as they did the Khalil Mack and Allen Robinson injuries: with real caution. Chicago and Detroit have split their previous 16 Thanksgiving meetings.
In the day's final game, the 9-1 Saints take on the 4-6 Falcons, looking to tighten their grip on the NFC South even further.

"I'm saying cautiously optimistic but I can't make any promises", Nagy said of Trubisky's chances of playing this week.
Detroit Lions fans arrive at Ford Field prior to the start of the Thanksgiving game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lions on November 26, 2015 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
-The Denver Broncos released veteran cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones, bringing his tenure in the Mile High City to an end after only seven games.
Daniel connected with Anthony Miller on his first play of the game, but missed receivers on second and third down as the Bears went three and out in their first series.
The Lions have shored up their run defense, which ranked last in the National Football League in the first half of the season, allowing an average of 142.5 yards. When you have a different player that's in and in the same position, it doesn't mean that they can do the same thing. But, they have to play better and hope running back Adrian Peterson has a hot finish.
To put it simply, the Falcons aren't very good this season and don't play with a consistent sense of urgency. There are strengths at all three levels of the defense.
