Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a torn groin muscle on Oct. 20th when the team lost to the Washington Redskins. The quarterback was expected to miss at least four weeks, but he remains positive for an earlier return.
“That’s my goal,” Cutler said as he addressed the media Tuesday for the first time since his injury.
Bears coach Marc Trestman commented on his quarterback: “He wants to get back as soon as he can. That’s all I can really say, but I think we’ve got to stay in line with what the doctors have said, and if it’s better than that, we certainly would be happy about that.”
We will just have to wait and see what doctors say and whether we see Culter back on the field sooner than later.
But, if Cutler does miss a few more weeks, he would be missing some key NFC North games.
The Bears have a tough two games coming up taking on the Green Bay Packers Week 9 and the Detroit Lions Week 10.
With a hurt Chicago defense, both the Lions and the Packers are going to put up a lot of points. The Bears haven’t been able to beat the Packers as they have won six games in a row against Chicago. The team is going to have a tough time trying to stop Aaron Rodgers. In the last two games he’s thrown five touchdowns and no interceptions showing that his team is still strong without significant players lost like Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley. The Lions dominant with quarterback Matthew Stafford with quick release throws which will leave the Bears no time to pressure the Lions. And their defensive line will definitely pressure Bears quarterback Josh McCown.
