The Chicago Bears are hoping that quarterback Jay Cutler will be able to play on Sunday. The Bears play Minnesota in Week 12 and will need Cutler’s presence to have a chance against a vastly improved Vikings team.
Thus far Cutler has met all the benchmarks to return from a concussion. Should he continue to improve he would be able to play on Sunday. Cutler was able to return to his weekly radio segment earlier this week where seemed unsure about a return.
“I don’t know, we’ll see,” Cutler said but this did occur before he met again with doctors. “Got to go out on the field and make sure you can exert yourself, and it’s a personal thing making sure you feel ok.”
Cutler missed last week after suffering a concussion from a helmet to helmet hit by Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins. Dobbins was fined $30,000 for the hit. Without Cutler the Bears were defeated 32-7. Though all the faults of the game can not fall on backup Jason Campbell as the Bears offensive line was unable to stop the 49ers defense from getting into their backfield.
Despite their 7-3 record the Bears are hardly considered shoe-ins for the playoffs. After the game against Minnesota they host Seattle before traveling to Minnesota and then playing Green Bay.
The Bears signed Josh McCown to serve as a third string quarterback earlier in the week.

They may get that this weekend as...

Monday night in San Francisco, nothing went right for the Bears in their 32-7 loss against the 49ers.
