Jay Cutler added to injury report, expected to play

The Bears have a chance to move to 6-6 and keep their toe in the Wild Card race in the NFC with a victory over the 49ers, so the appearance of quarterback Jay Cutler on the injury report on Friday is the sort of thing that catches the eye.

Cutler was limited in practice on Friday because of an illness, but concern about the possibility that he’d miss Sunday’s game appears low. Cutler is listed as probable on the injury report, so, while illnesses can of course, get worse, he should play.

Cutler won’t have Marquess Wilson catching his passes and Eddie Royal’s status is still up in the air. Wilson, who is third on the team in catches and second in receiving yards, has been ruled out after hurting his foot in practice on Wednesday. Royal is questionable after missing the last four games with a knee injury, but his lack of practice time isn’t a great sign for his availability. Tight end Martellus Bennett is expected to play after missing Thanksgiving.

Safety Antrel Rolle also didn’t practice because of a knee injury and hasn’t played since Week 10, but drew the same questionable tag as Royal.

  1. Packers and Arron Rodger SUCK
    Sick of the league and media darling Packers.
    The Bears and Lions have been screwed over for the last 4 years. Looks like the after getting the Bears out of the way early and now a royal screw job last night the Vikings will lose ro the Pack on the last day of rhe season and not get a chance to get at Rodgers in the playoffs. Vikes will get screwed over like the Lions, Cowboys and Bears for the last 4 years.

  2. Royal and Rolle cashed in on big contracts, overpaid and way passed their prime cashing in.

  3. Please let the back up play and destroy the 49ers!

    That would be a great xmas present from the Yorks!

  4. Who have the Lions and Bears been “screwed over” by? When you suck, you suck. It’s nobody’s fault but their own.

  5. I’m Jay Culter, time to get buff now.

    All (extremely isoteric) joking aside. Jay Cutler is a quarterback. Our definitions must rely on some objective set of rules right? Nope. You must be joking.
