Cutler throwing, Bears optimistic about finale

Jay Cutler,  Caleb Hanie, Mike Tice AP

Jay Cutler is continuing to progress in his recovery from thumb injury. The question is whether the Bears will still be in the playoff race by the time he’s able to play.

Jay Glazer of FOX reported Sunday that Cutler has started to throw long toss and has an outside chance of playing next week against the Packers.

Glazer also said the team was relatively optimistic Cutler could return for the team’s Week 17 finale — if the Bears are still in playoff contention at the time.

The Bears desperately need a win Sunday at home against Seattle or their playoff hopes are nearly done.

    For f’s sake sit cutler and forte the rest of the year. This is a no brainer.

    This was never a super bowl team what reason could the coaching staff possibly find to risk these two to even more long-term damage??
