Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a torn groin in a 45-41 loss to the Washington Redskins on October 20.
According to the Bears, the minimum amount of time Cutler could supposedly miss with this type of injury is four weeks.
“Yeah, that’s the goal,” Cutler said when asked if he is pushing toward an early return via Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com.
On the season, Cutler has completed 146 of 225 passes for 1,658 yards with 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
When Cutler went down, he was replaced by veteran Josh McCown. He went 14-of-20 for 204 yards and a touchdown.
Cutler is going to continue to help McCown as he tries to get back.
“Just doing whatever the doctors and trainers tell me,” Cutler said. “That’s kind of the world we’re living in right now. It’s tough watching. It’s always the hardest part, not being able to do your job with the rest of the guys. So I’ve just got to help Josh [McCown] as best I can. And when I get back, I get back.”
The Bears will be in Green Bay to take on the rival Packers Monday night.
