Week 3 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Thursday
Bears QB Jay Cutler (right thumb) missed practice again Thursday. Cutler is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, though there are reports that he’s pushing to play in Week 3. Brian Hoyer will very likely start. He’s not much of a downgrade from Cutler at this point, so the Bears’ skill position players shouldn’t lose much value with Hoyer under center.
