Jay Cutler practicing on Thursday

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said earlier this week that he’d need to practice before he’d have a handle on his chances on returning to action against the Cowboys on Monday night.

That return came on Thursday, the Bears’ first day of practice this week. Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports that Cutler was taking part in the portion of practice open to the media.

It’s the first time that he’s been back on the practice field since spraining his ankle on November 10 and, per Campbell, Josh McCown was the first quarterback up during drills on Thursday. McCown has played well while Cutler’s been on the bench, but the Bears have continued to struggle on defense while losing two of their last three to lose ground in the NFC playoff race.

There’s no word yet on how much Cutler practiced or what chances he has of playing on Monday night. If Cutler can play, the final four games will serve as both a chance to move back up the playoff ladder and an opportunity for Cutler to make a final statement before opening up talks about his next contract.

    Cool. Cutler and Rogers are both getting healthy just in time to play Dallas. You’re welcome, Philly.

    But will he be enough for the Bears to handle Tony Romo in a December game? It’s like the resistable force against the movable object.

    Bears should win this week…them WRs are dangerously good…and this Dallas defense is sickening to watch 95% of the time

    Why bother practice? He’s such a loser.

    Cutler is out Monday. McCown will play.

    I see a bunch of 42-38 games in the Bears future.

    The Cowboys already gave the Lions a gift this year. Lions need to do their part for the Cowboys. As a used to live in MI, I always know never to expect anything from the Lions. Hopefully they will prove me wrong.

    so, with the success of mccown, a journeyman who was out of football for a while, mean cutler is a system qb? just curious, cuz that’s what a lot of people called rodgers, but his backups are not getting it done.

  15. wannabear says: Dec 5, 2013 3:59 PM

    A win for my Bears!!

  16. larryboodry says: Dec 5, 2013 4:30 PM

    Cutler’s been ruled out after all.

    I heard a rumor that the Tennessee Titans are very interested in signing Jay Cutler to a long term contract, if he becomes available and he becomes a free agent, as the Bears want to fix their defense and are unsure about Cutler long term. The Titans see Cutler as a good fit especially since he played in Nashville on college at Vanderbilt.

    Cutler suddenly back when Dallas comes to town. And Rodgers sits out while the Eagles pick up an easy win but look for him to return for Dallas.

    NFL has become pro wrestling. It’s scripted I tell you.
