Draft Scout Jay Cutler News
12/23/13 - QB Jay Cutler eventually was pulled from Sunday's game, but it had nothing to do with the level of his play.
He probably would have been out earlier just to avoid injury with the Packers game coming up, but had been only back one game since a month-long absence and coach Marc Trestman wanted him to get in more work.
"That was part of it just to get another series and give the guys a chance to at least take one more shot at it, and we didn't get it done," Trestman said. "At that point in time, we started taking guys out just for that reason, to make sure nothing unusual would happen in the rest of the game knowing what we had coming up on Sunday."
12/10/13 - Bears coach Marc Trestman has proven his willingness to take a gamble, yet his biggest risk awaits when quarterback Jay Cutler returns from an ankle sprain.
After Josh McCown became the first Bears quarterback to ever throw for 300 or more yards in three consecutive games in a 45-28 Monday night win over Dallas, Trestman and all involved continued to insist Cutler is still the starter, which could be a real risk.
"There's no change in the plan," Trestman said. "We'll see where Jay is this week. He'll have to be released by the doctors. When Jay's ready to play, he'll being playing."
12/03/13 - QB Jay Cutler remains week to week and the status of his sprained ankle will be updated after the team resumes practices on Thursday.
11/27/13 - QB Jay Cutler had already been ruled out for Sunday's game earlier in the week, and remains on the side at practices.
11/21/13 - QB Jay Cutler has already been ruled out for Sunday's game at Minnesota due to the high ankle sprain he suffered against Detroit three weeks ago. Cutler's return hadn't been expected this week as he did nothing in practice all last week.
However, the Bears remain optimistic he will return at some point this year and play. He remains week to week with a high ankle sprain.
On Monday, coach Marc Trestman shot down rumors there is more wrong with Cutler's ankle than a sprain, and said the injury is exactly as the team originally reported.
"I'm totally confident he'll play again this season," Trestman said. "I don't have any reason (to doubt this) based on what I've been told. It's still week-to-week. I'm confident. I think Jay is confident. "You have to leave yourself an opening, but there is no underlying information here. It's week to week with the understanding that at some point in time on a week-to-week basis that he'll be back."
