NFL Injury Report:
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.

Yeah, there's a new GM in Phil Emery and thank GOD Jerry Angelo is gone, but I do not understand what is up with guys WAAAAAY smarter than me not understanding that your offense won't work without guys who can block.

Tweet Denver Broncos fans have seen this movie before. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall put up three consecutive 100-catch seasons (102 in 2007, 104 in 2008, 101 in 2009) with the mile high team, two of them with Jay Cutler as quarterback. Reunited this season in Chicago the duo have once again formed one of [...]

Jay Cutler can't catch a break this season.
Clay Matthews was back at practice Wednesday for the first time since pulling his hamstring last month, and he's eager to terrorize the Bears quarterback again Sunday when the Green Bay Packers (9-4) travel to Chicago. The Packers can clinch the NFC North title with a victory over their biggest rivals.
''When you have...
Perhaps this loss to the Minnesota Vikings is endemic of Lovie Smith's career as a Chicago Bears head coach. The defense played well, but gave up just enough to lose the game. The offense showed promise, but never put up enough points to win the football game.
In this loss the full ugliness of Smith's tenure was on display with the defense giving up over 100 yards...
Injuries have played a role in the Bears recent struggles. But this version of the Bears yearly collapse has many other factors.
One way or another, the Bears always seem to find a way to fall short of their potential. Whether it be injuries, play calling, personnel, or Father Time, every aspect seems to make a yearly appearance at one point or another and derail the season.
The last time Clay Matthews faced Chicago, he dropped Jay Cutler for 3.5 sacks. Rather than rush back from his hamstring injury, Matthews and the training staff kept the "big picture" in mind during his four-game absence. The "big picture" also is in play with Charles Woodson.
The Chicago Bears have very rarely been known for their offense throughout the history of the NFL. The Chicago Bears have always been a franchise known for their defensive prowess and superstars. The 2012 season has been no different for the Bears. The defense has been very solid for the most part, while the offense has really struggled to find its footing and get any kind of...
Much like their early season success on the football field in number of games won, the Bears successfully avoided a lot of injuries. That is no longer the case with this team facing a rash of injuries with three games left to play in the regular season.
In total the Bears have 14 players listed on the injury report for the game against the Packers. 11 of those player...
