The Bears are calling Jay Cutler (hamstring) "day to day."

Cutler has been getting in some limited practices this week, but we've yet to see a single credible report that suggests he'll start Sunday's game against the Raiders. For now, Cutler should be considered 50-50 for Week 5.
Oct 1 - 2:59 PM

Jay Cutler (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

The Bears are likely just trying to be sneaky and tease us. Nobody has suggested Cutler has a realistic shot at playing this week against the Raiders. Expect Jimmy Clausen to get one more start before Cutler returns Week 5.
Sep 30 - 2:21 PM

Bears declared QB Jay Cutler, OLB Jon Bostic, DT Brandon Dunn, OT Tayo Fabuluje, C Hroniss Grasu, WR Alshon Jeffery and LB Willie Young inactive for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Cutler suffered a hamstring injury in last week's loss to Arizona and was never expected to play this week. Tracy Porter (hamstring), Eddie Royal (back, hip), Matt Forte (knee), Pernell McPhee (knee), Matt Slauson (thigh/toe) and Marquess Wilson (shoulder) are all active.
Sep 27 - 3:38 PM

Jay Cutler (hamstring) is out for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Jimmy Clausen will be the sacrificial lamb in the Seahawks' home opener.
Sep 25 - 1:03 PM

Jay Cutler (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

Coach John Fox preposterously claimed on Wednesday that Cutler has yet to be ruled out for Week 3, but we doubt he even makes the trip to Seattle. Cutler is week to week. Fill-in Jimmy Clausen is Rotoworld's No. 32 quarterback for Week 3.
Sep 24 - 2:29 PM

Bears coach John Fox wouldn't rule out Jay Cutler (hamstring) for Week 3 following Wednesday's practice.

The Bears have been playing nonsensical, time-wasting injury games since Fox and GM Ryan Pace replaced Marc Trestman and Phil Emery. Through two weeks, the new regime has zero wins to show for it while losing by a combined 33 points. "If [Jay]’s healthy, he starts," said Fox. "If not, Jimmy (Clausen) will start." ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported Cutler will miss "at least" two weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jay Cutler (hamstring) will miss "at least" two weeks.

If you couldn't already tell, Week 2 was a bloodbath for injuries across the NFL. The Bears will turn to Jimmy Clausen entering a Week 3 road date at Seattle, and it sounds like Clausen could start at least a game after that. Even for as shaky as Cutler is, losing him is a huge downgrade for every member of the Bears' offense. Fantasy owners of the Seahawks' defense should be locking their chops.
Sep 21 - 5:40 PM

Jay Cutler's hamstring injury is "not severe," but he's questionable for Week 3.

Coach John Fox called his quarterback's diagnosis "good news." It's still strange that Cutler came away with a hamstring injury on a tackle where he racked his shoulder and head, but so it goes. As for Fox's "not severe" and "good news" proclamations, the Bears' coach doesn't tell the truth about injuries. We're unlikely to have a good feel for Cutler's status before Friday's injury report is released. Even then, it could be tough to discern. If Cutler sits, backup Jimmy Clausen will be in an impossible spot for Chicago's road trip to Seattle.
Sep 21 - 2:43 PM

Bears TE Martellus Bennett and WR Josh Bellamy indicated after the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals Jay Cutler (hamstring) could miss Week 3.

Both players spoke about Jimmy Clausen as if he was going to start next week against the Seahawks. "Jimmy just has to come in and fill in that role," Bellamy said. "We're going to catch a lot of balls from Jimmy during the week," Bennett said. These comments do not confirm Cutler is dealing with a long-term injury, but they could represent the best information we get out of the infamously tight-lipped Bears. We will have a better idea of Cutler's status for Week 3 after the first practice report is released on Wednesday.

Jay Cutler was forced from Chicago's Week 2 game against the Cardinals with a hamstring injury, and will not return.

Jimmy Clausen will finish the game. The hamstring is a surprising diagnosis, as Cutler appeared to both rack his throwing shoulder and hit his head as he attempted to tackle Cards S Tony Jefferson on a pick six. For now, Cutler should be considered day to day, and questionable for Week 3. The Bears don't have a third quarterback behind Clausen, though David Fales would likely be promoted from the practice squad.

Jay Cutler was forced from Chicago's Week 2 game against the Cardinals with an injury late in the first half.

He went down with 2:59 remaining in the second quarter. It's either a concussion or Cutler's throwing shoulder. Cutler has injured trying to tackle Cardinals S Tony Jefferson on a 26-yard pick six. The interception was Cutler's first incompletion of the first half. If he's done for the day, he finishes 8-of-9 for 120 yards, one touchdown and the pick. Cutler's touchdown was a 48-yarder to Josh Bellamy on a blown coverage.
Sep 20 - 2:22 PM

Jay Cutler completed just 18-of-36 passes for 225 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

He added 31 yards on the ground on a couple timely scampers. It was a mixed bag for Cutler in his first game under coach John Fox and OC Adam Gase. Cutler was pretty good on third downs, but took some untimely sacks and threw a bad interception that sealed the loss for the Bears. Clay Matthews undercut the route to the tight end and picked it off. Cutler also needs to be more efficient, but it was encouraging to see Chicago running lots of no-huddle. Better weeks are ahead for Cutler. The Bears get Arizona at home in Week 2.
Sep 13 - 5:13 PM

Jay Cutler completed 13-of-17 passes for 98 yards in Saturday's third preseason game.

Cutler was playing without his top three wideouts, so it's hard to draw any conclusions. He's managed to cut down on his turnovers this preseason, throwing zero interceptions through three games. Cutler isn't more than a mid-range QB2.
Aug 29 - 9:57 PM

Jay Cutler hasn't thrown an interception through 11 training camp practices.

Marcus Mariota and Geno Smith have gotten more attention for their INT-free streaks, but Smokin' Jay has been careful with the ball for new coach John Fox. Cutler admits it means little for the regular season. "Camp’s camp," Cutler said. "We’re not getting hit. These aren’t live bullets. So we’ll see what happens when we start going." Cutler's leash will be much shorter than his contract dictates this season.
