Chicago Bears expect Jay Cutler to start against Detroit Lions


When Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a nasty groin tear a few weeks back, his earliest return date was likely a month out. And that was perceived to be a best case scenario. If there were any setbacks, Cutler was expected to be out longer.

However, after missing just two weeks, Cutler has made an incredible recovery is expected to return and start against the Detroit Lions in Week 10, this according to head coach Marc Trestman:

Well, Trestman just said he’s been cleared to play. He’s expecting Cutler to start.

The Bears were expected to find out more information on Cutler earlier Thursday morning/afternoon and while those results have yet to be made public, it’s clear they were positive considering Trestman’s suggestion that he expects Cutler to suit up and start.

Cutler, who injured his groin in the Bears’ Week 7 matchup against the Washington Redskins made an incredibly quick recovery, some of that likely due to the plasma enrichment therapy he underwent to speed up his down time.
