Bears fans thought they would go 3-3 or 4-2 with Caleb Hanie, winning enough games to see if Jay Cutler could return for the playoffs.
Hanie is 0-3 and the Bears are running out of hope for this season. Cutler is doing his best to return early and gave Bears fans a little bit of hope Wednesday.
Cutler told the Waddle and Silvy Show on ESPN1000 that there’s an “outside chance” he could play against the Packers next week. We haven’t heard a ton about Cutler’s recovery since thumb surgery, but most reports have indicated he’d be very lucky to play again this season.
If the Bears lose to Seattle Sunday to fall to 7-7, it may be too late for Cutler to save the team.
