The Chicago Bears have watched quarterback Josh McCown do an admirable job since filling in for the injured Jay Cutler, but wasn’t enough to earn him the full-time starting job. With Cutler practicing this week and looking good, the team is expected to put the reigning NFC Offensive Player of the Week on the bench in favor of Cutler.

According to ESPN Chicago, Cutler will start vs. the Cleveland Browns unless he experiences a setback during practice.

Head coach Marc Trestman had said that Cutler will start when healthy, so the move comes as no surprise despite McCown’s success.

With just three games remaining and the Bears needing to win out, the Bears are playing a dangerous game by disrupting the chemistry that their offense has had.

While it could pay off in the end, Trestman needs to be prepared to answer plenty of questions that will come his way if Cutler comes out rusty on Sunday.
