Jay Cutler expects to play on Monday Night but still has not been cleared by doctor’s
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler reiterated his goal to return for the club’s Dec. 9 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on “Monday Night Football,” but indicated he hasn’t yet received clearance from the team’s medical staff after suffering a severe high ankle sprain on Nov. 10.
Just last week, Cutler said “the goal” was to return by Dec. 9. But Bears coach Marc Trestman maintained that Cutler is still “week to week,” adding that “we’ll just see where he is.”
“Getting better,” Cutler said Monday during “The Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 1000. “Still got to talk to the doctors, gotta go through some stuff this week. I don’t know. I think if we’re gonna have any shot at playing, I’m gonna have to practice [this week]. I still feel like I’m gonna get back here really soon. I want to play. It’s just the trainers and doctors and going through the scenario we’ve got to go through.”
I honestly do not feel that Jay Cutler is the answer. I think Josh McCown should continue to start, he has a great rhythm with the wide receivers.
