Jay Cutler doesn’t know if he’ll play this week

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler met the media on Wednesday and answered the question that everyone was waiting to ask out of the way right up front.

“I don’t know. We’ll see,” Cutler said, via Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Cutler said that he isn’t experiencing any symptoms from the concussion he suffered against the Texans in Week 10.  Cutler’s doing interviews, which isn’t something he’d be doing in the early stages of the recovery process, but there’s still some hoops he needs to jump through to get the green light to return to the field.

“I got to see some more doctors. You got to go on the field. And really it’s a personal thing, to make sure you’re OK,” Cutler said.

Jason Campbell took Cutler’s place against the Niners on Monday night and is probably still checking over his shoulder to see if Aldon Smith is anywhere in the vicinity. Playing Cutler behind an offensive line that just got abused the way the Bears got abused isn’t an ideal way to return from a concussion, but it is hardly an ideal situation under any circumstances. It also worked well enough for the Bears to win seven of their first eight games, so the Bears will take their chances as soon as Cutler’s allowed to proceed.

    I’d take Cutler with double vision over Jason Campbell in this offense any day of the week.

    Behind that Oline I’d be running into walls to try to get concussed.

    It’s amazing how many games Cutler has won behind that O-Line

    Lets see Bears have lost two in a row without Cutler, this being an NFC North game I’m willing to bet he plays. Unless the Bears think (dillusional) Campbell can put up points against the Vikings D.

    So if he can’t play again this weekend, that will mean he’s missed a total of 8 out of his last 17 games.

    I hope he plays so Jared can really put him out!

    No matter who the Bears start at QB, it is a virtual certainty that Gabe Carimi will play. That bodes well for the Vikings

    I had a dream that I was the O-line coach for CHI, then got fired. THEN I ended up being hired by the Eagles at the same position. Talk about scary.

    Cutler makes that line look better than it is. We need Jay back!

    He can’t play, one of his teammates stole his jersey. I Saw it on TV so it must be true.
