Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

With Clausen inactive, Ryan Mallett is slated to start Sunday's game, with Matt Schaub on hand to serve as the team's No. 2 QB in Week 16.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Expected to give way to Mallett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Baltimore Sun relays that Clausen's teammate, Ryan Mallett, is expected to start Sunday's game against the Steelers.

While the Ravens have not confirmed such an outcome, it looks like the team wants to take a look at Mallett, with next season in mind. In any case, barring a change in gears here, it's not worth rolling the dice on Clausen in Week 16.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Two touchdowns in blowout loss to Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen completed 26 of 45 passes for 281 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's blowout loss to the Chiefs. He also gained 30 yards on five carries.

The veteran had his most productive game of the season as the Ravens played catch up, although his numbers were padded a bit by a successful Hail Mary as time expired in the first half. Clausen appears to be the man in line to finish out the season at the helm in Baltimore, and he has proven capable of leading the offense against a couple of tough opponents over the last two weeks. That being said, there will be some tough times on a team devoid of elite playmakers, and Clausen will be a risky fantasy option next week against the Steelers.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Set to draw Sunday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen is set to start Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Clausen gets the nod Sunday, but he'll be facing a tough Week 15 matchup, going up against a Chiefs' squad that has reeled off seven straight wins. Matt Schaub is on hand in a backup capacity.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Could start in place of Schaub
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though Matt Schaub is in uniform Sunday, the Baltimore Sun indicates that it's still unclear if he or Clausen will start the contest. That said, based on pre-game warm-ups, it looks like Clausen is in line to draw the assignment.

If Clausen indeed helms the injury-depleted Baltimore offense this week, it's a daunting matchup, as he'd be going up against a Chiefs' squad that has reeled off seven straight wins.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Held out of end zone in loss to Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen completed 23 of 40 passes for 274 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

The veteran has been unfortunate enough to make both of his starts against the Seahawks this season, and although he posted a much better yardage total this time around, he was held out of the end zone once again Sunday. Matt Schaub is out indeffinitely with a chest injury, and Clausen figures to start under center until the former returns. If Schaub sits out again next week against the Chiefs, Clausen would finally get to face a team other than Seattle, but he would still carry very little fantasy upside.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Will start Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Matt Schaub inactive, Clausen will start Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Working with a depleted pass-catching corps and against a rugged Seattle defense, Clausen doesn't look like a high-percentage fantasy play this week, but he is an option for those scrambling for a QB in deeper leagues.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen is expected to start Sunday against the Seahawks in place of the injured Matt Schaub (chest), according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Bryn Renner is expected to be the backup, though ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that it's still possible that Schaub could be the No. 2. Either way, Clausen will be under center against a Seahawks defense that hasn't been nearly as dominant this season, though with so few healthy skill players in Baltimore, Clausen will have his work cut out for him.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Could start Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen's teammate Matt Schaub (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

If the Ravens sign another quarterback Saturday, it will be a strong indication that Schaub isn't expected to play. Clausen would arguably be the least appealing fantasy option among the NFL's 32 starting quarterbacks, as he's consistently struggled with his opportunities and doesn't figure to get much help from his teammates.

Ravens' Jimmy Clausen: Claimed off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen was claimed off waivers by the Ravens on Tuesday.

Released by the Bears just a day earlier, Clausen quickly found a favorable landing spot, with the Ravens needing a backup to Matt Schaub. Given Schaub's propensity for meltdowns, it won't be at all surprising if Clausen gets playing time before the end of the season. There's still no upside to speak of, as Clausen has been consistently bad during his NFL career, and the Baltimore offense has been decimated by injuries. Clausen has experience working with Ravens offensive coordinator Marc Trestman from their time together in Chicago.

Bears' Jimmy Clausen: Released on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen was released by the Bears on Monday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.

Hopelessly overwhelmed in his two appearances this season, Clausen has yet to show any real signs of being a competent NFL quarterback. David Fales, a 2014 sixth-round draft pick, was promoted from the practice squad to replace Clausen as the backup signal-caller.

Bears' Jimmy Clausen: Available off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clausen (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Clausen was a late addition to the Bears' injury report after the back issue only limited him during Thursday's practice this week, but it appears he's feeling strong enough to serve in a backup capacity behind Jay Cutler. The Bears' decision to keep third-string quarterback David Fales inactive seems to indicate the team is comfortable with where Clausen is at on the health front.

With limited practices under his belt to kick off the week, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has opened the door for a return Sunday following a hamstring strain suffered in Week 2.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler isn't giving any hints about his status for Week 4 against the Raiders.

"If I can get back, I'll get back," he said.

With limited practices under his belt to kick off the week, Cutler has opened the door for a return Sunday following a hamstring strain suffered in Week 2.

His recovery is a "day-to-day" prospect, but Friday's injury report will ultimately give an indication whether game action is possible. If not, backup Jimmy Clausen will again direct the Bears' offense.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Cutler's practice reps were contained to individual drills, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com. While the appearance was a surprise, Cutler is still expected to sit out another week as he recovers from a strained hamstring.

As long as he's sidelined, Jimmy Clausen will assume QB duties for the Bears.

Bears QB Jimmy Clausen struggles in loss to Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen completed just 9 of 17 passes for 63 yards in Sunday's 26-0 loss at Seattle. He did not throw a touchdown nor turn the ball over.

Clausen couldn't have had a more difficult situation to deal with, facing the Seahawks on the road, and with the return of Kam Chancellor. He was also missing his best receiver in Alshon Jeffery.

In any event, he's likely to make at least one more start next week for an injured Jay Cutler, and that looks to be a better matchup at home against the Raiders.

Bears QB Jay Cutler officially ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As anticipated, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been ruled out for the game Sunday in Seattle with a hamstring injury, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Jimmy Clausen will start at quarterback until Cutler is ready to return, which might not occur for another two or three weeks.

Report: QB Jimmy Clausen to start for injured Jay Cutler
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears quaterback Jimmy Clausen will start during Jay Cutler's absence due to a hamstring injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Cutler will sit out at least two games with the ailment, affording Clausen the opportunity to start for just the second time since the 2010 season. In Cutler's place Sunday against the Cardinals, Clausen was 14-of-23 passing for 121 yards with an interception, but he'll likely have difficulty one-upping those modest results in Week 3 against a motivated Seahawks defense in the one of the loudest venues in sport, CenturyLink Field.

Bears QB Jimmy Clausen puts team in pickle with sacks, fumble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen was in a real pickle when he entered for the injured Jay Cutler on Sunday against Arizona. He didn't help matters in what turned out to be a rout.
Clausen completed 14 of 23 passes for 121 yards and an interception. He struggled for much of the day, taking two sacks and fumbling, though the Bears recovered it.
Bears head coach John Fox would not say after the game if Cutler is expected to miss any time, but if he does, Clausen would start in Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) out of Sunday's game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler injured his hamstring trying to make a tackle on a pick-six against Arizona, per azcentral.com. Jimmy Clausen has entered the game.

Cutler completed all but one of his nine passes for 120 yards and a touchdown before tossing the interception that ultimately sent him to the sideline.

John Fox preaching open competition, even at QB
by Larry Hartstein |

New Bears coach John Fox called it "all an open competition" when asked if he could see a scenario in which quarterback Jay Cutler had to compete for the starting job, reports ESPN.com. Jimmy Clausen is Cutler's projected backup.

“I would say logically if you are looking at the depth chart and you are asking me for it two weeks before we can really get anything going, I’d say  be [Cutler would be] first on the depth chart, yeah,” Fox said.

“Obviously you’ve got to start somewhere and my experience in football and really anything is it’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it. We have to start the race with some kind of lineup, and we have not discussed that in depth. We have not presented it to our players in depth. I think it’s important for them to see it maybe more than you guys. I’ve had guys who were third on the depth chart that by the time we started the opener were first. I can’t tell you what’s happening. If I could I’d be at some race track somewhere.”
