Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was playing at less than 100 percent on Sunday during the team’s loss to the division rival Detroit Lions, thanks to tweaking his ankle earlier in the game. Cutler was eventually pulled from the game and the team announced that their starting quarterback was considered “week-to-week” with a high ankle sprain moving forward.
When teams say week-to-week, it generally means that you can expect the player to miss a couple of games and Cutler will be out for at least one.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday afternoon that Cutler will be out for the team’s Week 11 match up against the Baltimore Ravens.
Without Cutler in the line up, the Bears will roll out Josh McCown as the starter once again.
McCown has looked solid in his appearances for the Bears this season, so they should not be in too much danger of falling out of the NFC North race with him leading the offense.
As long as Cutler can return for the final stretch of the regular season, there should be no cause for concern among the Bears faithful.
