In the type of coincidence native to the NFL, the Bears received clearance on quarterback Jay Cutler on Monday -- soon after we discovered that quarterback Brian Hoyer will be out for a significant amount of time with a broken arm.

Head coach John Fox made the announcement Monday, adding that Hoyer's surgery was successful and that he will likely head to injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said this could be an audition for Cutler as the Bears may try to get out of his contract at the end of the season. With the weapons around him in the passing game, he certainly has fantasy potential, although before the injury it was a bit of a struggle for him.
