The Bears quarterback is expected to miss a few weeks with a hamstring injury, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per source informed of his injury. He's out at least two weeks, but it could be longer. Jimmy Clausen will start for Chicago in Week 3.
Cutler suffered the injury while trying to prevent a pick-six in Chicago's 48-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
Cutler suffered no major damage to his hamstring. Jimmy Clausen will likely start when they visit defending NFC champion Seattle (0-2) this weekend. It's a downgrade for the entire Bears offense headed into a hornets nest in Seattle. Star WR Alshon Jeffery missed Week 2 so his status could be key to Clausen's success in Week 3.
BAL QB Jimmy Clausen - Week 16, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs. Pittsburgh
Jimmy Clausen struggled against the Chiefs last week, throwing a pair of picks. He did have two touchdown passes and 281 yards passing, but it was too little too late against the Kansas City team that steamrolled the Ravens and won 34-14.
This week, Clausen faces a vulnerable Steelers pass defense, but is not guaranteed to get the start over newcomer Ryan Mallett, as the two battle over a potential 2016 roster spot in the closing weeks of the season. Regardless of who starts, fantasy owners should look away from the Ravens passers, as none project to do well even if they start.
