Report: Jay Cutler to be benched Week 16
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Bears will bench starting quarterback Jay Cutler Week 16 against the Lions, according to ESPN.

The move comes as a big surprise given the seven-year, $126 million contract Cutler signed in January. Cutler has had a big problem with turnovers this season, throwing 18 interceptions and fumbling 12 times. The move could mark the end of Cutler's season as the starter, and puts his future in Chicago in jeopardy. 

The team will turn to Jimmy Clausen to replace Cutler.

Report: Bears to start Jimmy Clausen Week 16
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Bears will start Jimmy Clausen Week 16 against the Lions, according to ESPN.

The move comes as a major surprise. While Jay Cutler has faced scrutiny for his body language and demeanor, the team handed him a seven-year, $126 million contract last season. The move seems to indicate that Cutler is done for the season, and puts his career with the Bears in jeopardy.

Clausen has seen time in three games this season, completing three passes in nine attempts. His last start came back in 2010, his rookie season. That year, Clausen threw for 1,558 yards, with three touchdowns against nine interceptions. 

The Lions are currently 7-point favorites, according to VegasInsider.com.

Federal judge dismisses painkillers lawsuit against NFL
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

A judge  on Wednesday dismissed a class-action suit brought by former NFL players who claimed the league illegally administered painkillers to keep players on the field, reports the Washington Post.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup ruled the issue is covered by collective bargaining and does not belong in federal court.

"In such a rough-and-tumble sport as professional football, player injuries loom as a serious and inevitable evil. Proper care of these injuries is likewise a paramount need," Alsup wrote.

"The main point of order is that the league has addressed these serious concerns in a serious way -- by imposing duties on the clubs via collective bargaining and placing a long line of health-and-safety duties on the team owners themselves. These benefits may not have been perfect, but they have been uniform across all clubs and not left to the vagaries of state common law. They are backed up by the enforcement power of the union itself and the players' right to enforce these benefits."

The suit was filed by nine former players, including Hall of Famer Richard Dent and quarterback Jim McMahon of the Super Bowl-winning Bears. The player contend the league administered painkillers "without proper prescriptions, in illegal doses, without medical supervision and with little or no explanation of risks and dangers," per the paper.

The goal, according to the players, was to "mask pain and conceal injuries," the paper reported. Alsup gave the players until Dec. 30 to file an amended complaint.

The NFL declined comment on the ruling.

Report: Bears will likely fire Marc Trestman at season's end
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

It appears as if the Marc Trestman is down to his final two games as the coach of the Chicago Bears.

According to Dan Bernstein of WSCR in Chicago, the team's ownership met following another disastrous loss at home Monday night to discuss Trestman's future and are ready to part ways with the former Canadian Football League coach. General Manager Phil Emery's future is also uncertain, according to Pro Football Talk.

Chicago started the season 3-3 before losing six of the past eight games. They've been outscored 265-153 over that span. The defense has allowed 29.2 points per game, which ranks dead-last among all 32 teams in the league this season.

Bears defense can't slow Drew Brees down
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

 The Bears defense failed to do much to slow the Saints down in Week 15, in a 31-15 loss.

The Saints racked up 443 yards of total offense in the game, including 360 through the air, while giving up three touchdowns to Drew Brees. The Bears sacked Brees twice, and forced one turnover in the game, but finished the game with just 4 Fantasy points as a unit.

The Bears DST has had some decent showings this season, but have really struggled of late, scoring just 9 combined Fantasy points over their last three. They had just 4 in Week 13 against the Lions, who they play again in Week 16, so steer clear.
