Bears QB Jay Cutler passes concussion protocols, to start vs. Vikings
After a disastrous offensive performance last week against the 49ers, the Bears will get back their most important player in time for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
After a disastrous offensive performance Monday night against the 49ers, the Bears will get their most important player back in time for Sunday’s game against the Vikings.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports that quarterback Jay Cutler has passed the various concussion tests this week and will start Sunday.
“Cutler has come through the concussion tests and practice and passed all protocols,” La Canfora wrote.
That must be a welcome relief for the Bears, who allowed backup quarterback Jason Campbell to take six sacks in a 32-7 loss to San Francisco. Cutler suffered a concussion in Week 10 and missed the second half of that game as well.
"Feel good. Feel good," Cutler said earlier this week. "About as normal as can be. We're going through the process. I met with [the doctors] on Monday morning. Got a few more hoops to jump through, so we'll see how it goes this week."
Apparently, those hoops have been successfully navigated.
