Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky isn't going to mess with success.

Trubisky confirmed on Wednesday that -- for the second straight game -- he intends to wear a compression sleeve on his right throwing arm when the Bears (3-1) face the Miami Dolphins (3-2) on Sunday.

The last time Trubisky wore the sleeve, the second-year quarterback threw a career-best six touchdown passes in Chicago's 48-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 30.

Trubisky explained the origin of the arm sleeve before Wednesday's practice.

"I had a little cut on my arm a few weeks ago, and then it reopened in Arizona [in Week 3] on the first drive and was just gushing everywhere," Trubisky said. "And I didn't want that to happen [against the Bucs], and I covered it up. And then you play pretty well, some superstition, call it what you want. I also got a lot of threats that I have to wear it, so ..."

"I'm going to keep it on," Trubisky added. "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. So we'll see."
