Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh wants nothing but to play against Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler when the teams face each other Week 10.
“I love playing against Cutler. He’s a tough guy. No discredit to [Josh] McCown, but I want the best shot.”
But will Cutler be ready and healthy to go against the Lions this week?
It is still uncertain whether Cutler will be on the field Sunday. He suffered a groin injury Week 7 against the Washington Redskins and has not been back to play with the team. With his rehab reportedly going well, a Week 10 debut is questionable but likely. That’s only if Cutler feels 100 percent.
Cutler was seen practicing Thursday and has progressed. Yet, the quarterback admitted he won’t take the field so soon in part of how well his back up, McCown has been playing for the team. And that indeed is correct.
So far, McCown has delivered for the Bears. He has gone 36-of-61 for 476 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also has rushed five times for 53 yards. If Cutler did not play against the Lions this Sunday, it’s safe to say McCown is a viable quarterback for the Bears.
So Cutler continues to remain questionable for Week 10 but is very likely come Week 11. He seems to like McCown going fourth with this Bears team.
“I think the way that Josh is playing, we feel good about that and we don’t want to get into the situation where I’m out there and I get back a week too soon and I’m set back another four to six weeks. So I’m just gonna be smart with it,” Cutler says.
The Bears play the Lions this Sunday in Week 10.
