Bears QB Jay Cutler May Not Play Sunday Against Vikes
After getting stomped on Monday night by the San Francisco 49ers, the Chicago Bears will host the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at Soldier Field. The Bears were clearly missing quarterback Jay Cutler against San Francisco, but it’s unknown if Cutler will be available for Sunday’s NFC North tilt. On Tuesday, Cutler said on his radio show that he is hoping to return from a concussion as soon as possible, but he pointed out that he has not yet been cleared to play Sunday.
Cutler suffered his concussion on an illegal hit from Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins the previous Sunday and didn’t even make the trip to San Francisco.
Cutler said he felt good but is still going through the process of being approved to return. He is expected to meet with doctors on Wednesday and Thursday. He promises to return at some point this season, but didn’t know if it would be this weekend.
Jason Campbell started in place of Cutler on Monday and completed 14 of 22 passes for 107 yards with a touchdown. He also threw two interceptions and fumbled twice, one leading to a safety. Listen to that game on 100.9FM this Sunday at Noon, it’s Vikings at Bears.
The Bears, Packers, and Vikings are all separated by one game with six weeks to go.
