Bears head coach Lovie Smith mentioned that QB Jay Cutler is “getting better” following the concussion that he suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Texans.
“We are still evaluating him,” Smith said, via Brad Biggs. “He is meeting with people.“
There’s still some question as to whether or not he even has a chance to play against the 49ers this weekend, but we should have a better idea of his status by Thursday.
ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Bears QB Jay Cutler has suffered “nearly a half-dozen” concussions in his career.
The Bears appear to be prepared to hold him out of Monday’s game against the 49ers if he is still dealing with concussion-like symptoms during the week.
Jeff Dickerson reports that a league source has informed him that the Bears are expected to finalize deal with Josh McCown at some point today. McCown is backup Jason Campbell if Cutler is unable to go in Week 11.
During Sunday Night’s game against the Texans, Bears QB Jay Cutler was suffered a concussion and was held out of the second-half. Jason Campbell stepped in and was able to complete 11 of his 19 passes for 94 yards, but unfortunately was not able to get them in the end-zone.
There’s been some questions as to whether or not Cutler will be able to suit up for Week 11′s game against the San Francisco 49ers. If he’s unable to play, Campbell will take over, but Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that the Bears could re-sign Josh McCown to add some extra depth at the position.
Chicago struggled mightily without Cutler last season. They seemed poised for a playoff run before Cutler broke his thumb. The Bear’s backup quarterbacks went 1-5 without him. Should Campbell start, he’ll definitely have his work cutout for him against a very tough 49ers defense.
