After Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler took what was
deemed an illegal hit to the head which forced him out of Sunday’s contest
against the Minnesota Vikings, it was unclear what his status would be for the
remainder of the season. However, during his regular radio show yesterday
Cutler said he “should be ready to go later in the week” and expects to suit up
Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, reports Michael C. Wright of ESPN
Jay Cutler said he "should be ready to go later in the week." #JayCutlerShow

Cutler was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 21-14
loss to the Vikings when he was hit hard above the neck by defensive lineman
Everson Griffen. While he was able to finish the drive, Cutler then exited the
game and watched the conclusion from the sidelines.
There was initially fear that Cutler had once again
sustained a concussion, something he did Week 10 against the Houston Texans.
However, the quarterback’s injury was later diagnosed as a neck, and it appears
that it won’t cause him to miss time.
