Bears sign Jay Cutler to seven-year deal
Thursday, January 2, 2014, 10:53am
No numbers have been released yet, but they are bound to be big given how quickly this deal went down. Cutler averaged 16.9 fantasy points per game in the 10 games where he attempted at least 10 passes. That average tied Ben Roethlisberger for 16th among QBs. Under Marc Trestman, the Bears threw early and often, and the offense has a bright future given the weapons (Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett) at Cutler's disposal.

Bears will stick with Jay Cutler Week 17
Monday, December 23, 2013, 10:50am
Bears HC Marc Trestman extinguished the idea of the club re-installing Josh McCown as the starting quarterback in Week 17 when the head coach confirmed he is sticking with Jay Cutler for the Packers contest.

Bears will start Jay Cutler when he's healthy
Tuesday, December 10, 2013, 9:49am
Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman reiterated after Monday's 45-28 victory against the Dallas Cowboys that quarterback Jay Cutler will return to the starting lineup when he receives medical clearance from the team's doctors.
"There's no change in the plan," Trestman said. "We'll see where Jay is this week. He'll have to be released by the doctors. When Jay is ready to play, he'll be playing."
Cutler has missed the last four games with a severe high-ankle sprain he suffered versus the Lions on Nov. 10. Veteran backup Josh McCown completed 27 of 36 passes for 348 yards and four touchdowns, plus one rushing touchdown, in the win over Dallas, and in seven appearances in 2013, has thrown for 1,809 yards, 13 touchdowns, one interception and has posted an overall quarterback rating of 109.8. If you watched the MNF broadcast they pointed out a few times that this system suits the veteran McCown very well, but it looks like the Bears will go back to Cutler once he is able to play.

MNF Injury Report - Cutler OUT
Saturday, December 7, 2013, 6:03pm
CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring)
WR Dwayne Harris (hamstring)
LB Lance Briggs (shoulder), QB Jay Cutler (ankle)
S Anthony Walters (groin)
G Kyle Long (ankle), WR Brandon Marshall (quadricep), S Major Wright (hamstring)
Jay Cutler hoped to be back for this game, but Josh McCown will get another start and continues to play well - likely giving the Bears more flexibility with Culter's ankle. WR Brandon Marshall is probable, he didn't practice Thursday but was a full go Friday and Saturday.
For the Cowboys, Dez Bryant is probable and was a full participant Thursday through Saturday. On a defensive note, Dallas could be looking at a huge lift on defense as LB Sean Lee is listed as probable.
Jay Cutler ruled out for Week 14
Thursday, December 5, 2013, 5:04pm
Josh McCown has been playing very well, so there's no need to rush Cutler back. Temperatures will be low on Monday night (11 degrees at kickoff), so that's something to consider when owners set their lineups.
