Chicago Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler got some good news on Wednesday, as it was previously reported that his shoulder injury would have been season-ending. But after getting a second test, it seems he could return soon. Head coach John Fox said Cutler does have a chance of playing on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, but that is unlikely.
Cutler suffered the injury in last week’s game against the New York Giants on his throwing shoulder (right). It was said he had torn a labrum in that shoulder, but is now considered day-to-day.
Many believed last weeks game was the last time Cutler would be in a Bears uniform, but it seems like he has another chance to play for the team. He previously missed time this season after injuring his thumb, which he had surgery done on.
The Bears did sign David Fales off the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad, who was drafted by the Bears in the 2014 draft. Matt Barkley will likely take the starting position on Sunday and possibly the following week facing the San Francisco 49ers, depending upon how well Cutler and the team feels about his shoulder.
