Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was limited in practice today with neck and knee injuries, but the Bears say he’ll be good to go for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
The neck injury was suffered on a hard hit Sunday against the Vikings, a hit that knocked Cutler out of that game. It wasn’t clear which play caused the knee injury, but Bears coach Lovie Smith said he has no concerns about Cutler’s mobility going into the game against the Packers.
“None at all,” Smith said, via Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. “Practiced today without any trouble at all. You know, after a hard-fought game like that on the turf you sometimes have some bumps that last a little bit longer. He should be fine.”
In addition to linebacker Brian Urlacher, who has already been ruled out, the Bears held several players out of practice today, including receiver Earl Bennett (concussion), running back Michael Bush (ribs), cornerback Tim Jennings (shoulder) and defensive end Shea McClellin (knee).
The Packers have already ruled out defensive back Charles Woodson, and three players were held out of practice today: Receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring), running back James Starks (knee) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (knee).
