Jay Cutler will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery on Saturday.
Cutler is believed to have a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He'll finish 2016 with 1,059 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions over five appearances. There's a high-percentage chance Cutler has played his final down as a Bear. Matt Barkley will be the starting quarterback down the stretch of the Bears' latest failed season, with David Fales handling backup duty. Dec 1 - 2:44 PM

Jay Cutler (shoulder) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Coach John Fox continues to say Cutler is day to day, but he's highly unlikely to play against the 49ers. Matt Barkley gets a good spot at home against a dreadful defense, but he's hard to trust in a critical fantasy week.

Jay Cutler (shoulder) is inactive for Week 12 against the Titans.

Cutler is holding off on shoulder surgery for now. His season is reportedly in doubt. Matt Barkley will start against Tennessee and downgrades the entire pass offense. The rest of Chicago's inactives are CB De'Vante Bausby, CB Deiondre' Hall, S DeAndre Houston-Carson, OG Josh Sitton, OLB Leonard Floyd, and DE Mitch Unrein.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it's "far from a sure thing" that the Bears will move on from Jay Cutler this offseason.

The general consensus is that Cutler will be released after the season, which wouldn't be hard to do because all the guaranteed money from his seven-year extension has already been paid out. However, the Bears may not be able to find a better alternative in the draft with this year's class of quarterbacks considered to be unusually weak. Cutler will carry a $12.5 million base salary in 2017, which is fairly reasonable for a starting quarterback. Brian Hoyer outplayed Cutler before he got hurt, but he's likely to be a free agent casualty. Rapoport notes that coach John Fox is not Cutler's "biggest fan," though it's unclear if that will factor into the team's decision to keep him for next season.

Jay Cutler (shoulder) missed practice again Friday and is listed as doubtful for Week 12 against the Titans.

Despite coach John Fox's claims that Cutler is merely "day to day," he didn't practice at all this week and never had a chance of playing against Tennessee. Matt Barkley will be the Bears' starter, and he'll be backed up by David Fales.
Nov 25 - 2:45 PM

Coach John Fox said Jay Cutler (shoulder) is day to day.

"It's not season-ending, contrary to the reports you hear," Fox said. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Cutler is believed to have a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, which would certainly end his season. The Bears have not confirmed what the injury is, and Fox isn't ruling him out for Week 12 against the Titans. Cutler didn't practice Wednesday. He's extremely doubtful.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jay Cutler's shoulder injury is believed to be a torn labrum.

Yikes. Cutler will seek a second opinion but if the diagnosis is confirmed, he'll obviously be out for a while. Already playing without their best wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (PED suspension) and tight end Zach Miller (foot), the Bears can pretty much pack it in and start evaluating for next season. At this point, it would be a surprise if Cutler plays again this year. What a nightmare season for the Bears. At least the Cubs finally won the World Series.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Jay Cutler (shoulder) is expected to miss time.

The Chicago Tribune reported Monday that the Bears were "exploring" the idea of shutting Cutler down for the year, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. David Fales was signed off the Ravens' practice squad and will presumably back up Matt Barkley Sunday versus Tennessee. Brian Hoyer remains on injured reserve with a fractured forearm. If Cutler is indeed done for the year, there's a good chance we've seen the last of him in a Bears uniform. Drafting a quarterback should be a top priority for the Bears in 2017.
Nov 22 - 11:14 AM

The Chicago Tribune reports Jay Cutler suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Giants, and the Bears are "exploring" whether it will end Cutler's season.

There are few other details available at this point, but this would be a great excuse for John Fox to wash his hands of Cutler for good, send him to injured reserve, and play someone else for the rest of the season while continuing to improve the Bears' draft position. The Bears are a full-throttle trainwreck on almost every conceivable level. They may as well start evaluating for 2017.
Nov 21 - 4:45 PM

Jay Cutler completed 17-of-30 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Bears' 22-16, Week 11 loss to the Giants.

Coming off a nightmarish performance, Cutler was standing and delivering lasers, but there was only so much he could do with a limited supporting cast that thinned out even further with Zach Miller's foot injury. Miller appears to have suffered a break, lowering Cutler's already scarily-low floor even further. He'll be hard to trust as a Week 12 QB2 against the Titans.
Nov 20 - 4:52 PM

Coach John Fox said Monday the Bears will stick with Jay Cutler as their starting quarterback.

After playing one of his best games in years against the Vikings on Monday Night Football in Week 9, Cutler went right back in the tank in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay, committing four turnovers in arguably the worst quarterback performance of the week. Having lost Alshon Jeffery (PEDs) for the next month, Cutler will now be tasked with an inferior pass-catcher corps in upcoming games against the Giants, Titans, 49ers, and Lions. Cutler is playing out the string for a team he won't be a member of in 2017.
Nov 14 - 3:41 PM

Jay Cutler completed 16-of-30 passes for 182 yards with one touchdown, two interceptions and a lost fumble and rushed once for seven yards Sunday in the Bears' Week 10 loss to the Buccaneers.

He was sacked four times for a loss of 21 yards. Wow, what a nightmare. Cutler was an absolute train wreck on Sunday, committing four turnovers including an end-zone fumble that led to a safety. Cutler’s first pick came on a pass where he was staring down Alshon Jeffery. Brent Grimes stepped in front of it for the easy interception. Later he served up a pick-six to ex-teammate Chris Conte on a pass intended for Zach Miller. The only positive for Cutler was a 50-yard Hail Mary to Cameron Meredith on the final play of the first half, though Meredith deserves most of the credit for that. Cutler played about as bad as a professional quarterback can play in this one and probably would have been benched if Chicago had a viable backup. He’ll try and do better (it would be hard not to) against the Giants in Week 11.
Nov 13 - 5:01 PM

Jay Cutler completed 20-of-31 passes for 252 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 8 win over the Vikings.

This was wholly unexpected out of Cutler. The Vikings' D/ST was the chalk play of the week for fantasy purposes, but the unit laid an egg, forcing no turnovers and sacking Cutler just once. Cutler was playing without his two best linemen (LG Josh Sitton and RG Kyle Long), but the Bears blocked incredibly well, and Cutler got rid of the ball quickly. It helped that Jordan Howard ripped it up for 202 total yards out of the backfield, not allowing the Vikings to pin their ears back and come after Cutler. His touchdown pass was an 11-yard strike to Alshon Jeffery. It was about as good we've seen Cutler this season through three starts. Chicago now has its bye before taking on the Bucs in Week 10. Cutler won't be anything more than a QB2.
Oct 31 - 11:59 PM

The Chicago Tribune's Mike Mulligan reports Bears coach John Fox told friends "he was done" with Jay Cutler.

It has become clear Brian Hoyer would have remained the starter the rest of the season if not for the broken forearm which knocked him out of last Thursday's game. Now Cutler, who has been inactive with a thumb injury, is magically healthy again, and he will start against the Vikings. Cutler should treat his remaining starts with the Bears as an audition for the other 31 teams.
Oct 27 - 11:41 AM

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs doesn't expect the Bears to retain Jay Cutler for the 2017 season.

The Bears could see some serious changes on offense next year. Cutler is a virtual lock to be released, which would clear $14 million in cap space, and Alshon Jeffery is set to be a free agent after playing this season on the franchise tag. Cutler is 33 and probably has a handful of years left in him, but it's not going to be in Chicago. The Bears will look to draft their future passer.
