Jay Cutler (thumb) has been cleared to return for Week 8.
It's a Christmas miracle. All it took for Cutler's thumb to finally heal was Brian Hoyer breaking his arm. Cutler will be under center for Chicago's Monday night game against the Vikings' top-three defense. Cutler returns as a low-end QB2, but his presence is good news for Alshon Jeffery, whom Cutler should resume peppering with targets. Oct 24 - 1:35 PM

Jay Cutler (thumb) is doubtful for Week 7 against the Packers.

Cutler is still recovering from a thumb injury he suffered in Week 2. He has yet to resume practicing. Brian Hoyer will start for the fifth game in a row Thursday night at Green Bay. When Cutler is healthy enough to play, he'll likely return to a backup role behind Hoyer.

Jay Cutler (thumb) is doubtful for Week 6 against the Jaguars.

Cutler hasn't practiced since injuring his thumb in Week 2 and isn't close to returning. Brian Hoyer will draw his fourth start in a row Sunday versus Jacksonville. If Hoyer continues to play well, the Bears will likely stick with him, regardless of Cutler's health.
Oct 14 - 1:30 PM

Jay Cutler (thumb) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Cutler hurt his thumb in Week 2 and hasn't come close to playing since then. The Bears aren't going to rush his return with Brian Hoyer playing so well. We're guessing Hoyer will keep the starting job even when Cutler is back at full strength.

Jay Cutler (thumb) did not practice Wednesday.

Brian Hoyer is going to start against the Jaguars and has QB1 upside.
Oct 12 - 2:30 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Jay Cutler has "fallen out of favor" with some on the Bears' coaching staff.

Coach John Fox also wants "fewer turnovers out of the quarterback position," and La Canfora reports Brian Hoyer is in position to keep the starting job beyond this week if he continues to play well. La Canfora reports "Cutler's future in Chicago beyond this season appears more bleak than ever." The guarantees are gone from Cutler's contract after this year. In all likelihood, the Bears will be drafting a new quarterback next April/May.

Jay Cutler (thumb) is doubtful for Week 5.

He didn't practice all week. Brian Hoyer will get another start at Indianapolis, and his performance will likely continue to determine whether Cutler gets the starting job back. Hoyer is a viable streamer in a plus Week 5 matchup.

Jay Cutler (thumb) is not practicing Wednesday.

Brian Hoyer is expected to make his third-straight start against the Colts. Coach John Fox said Cutler remains day to day. He may not get his job back.
Oct 5 - 2:41 PM

Bears coach John Fox still considers Jay Cutler (thumb) week to week.

Brian Hoyer has been an upgrade on Cutler during the quarterback's absence, so the team won't rush his return. Hoyer has another plus Week 5 matchup in the Colts.
Oct 3 - 3:15 PM

Jay Cutler (thumb) is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

He missed practice on Thursday and Friday, and the Bears don't seem to be in any rush to get Cutler back. Brian Hoyer quietly finished as a top-12 fantasy passer in Week 3 against the Cowboys and has an enticing Week 4 matchup against a porous Lions pass defense. Hoyer is worth a look as a low-end streamer.
Sep 30 - 1:34 PM

Jay Cutler (thumb) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

Cutler looks set to miss his second straight game. Brian Hoyer will have some back-end QB2 appeal against the Lions' leaky defense.
Sep 29 - 2:34 PM

Jay Cutler (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Coach John Fox has continued to label Cutler as day to day. We're unlikely to get a legitimate update on Cutler before the end of the week. The tentative expectation is that Brian Hoyer will get another start against the Lions.
Sep 28 - 2:30 PM

Speaking Monday, coach John Fox called Jay Cutler (thumb) "day to day" ahead of the Bears' Week 4 date with the Lions.

Fox is averse to giving legitimate injury updates, but Cutler was reportedly politicking to play last week and might have a chance to return sooner rather than later. We'll be monitoring his situation throughout the week.
Sep 26 - 4:04 PM

Jay Cutler (thumb) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Cutler hasn't practiced since spraining his thumb on Monday Night Football and isn't going to play this week. His status is also in doubt for Week 4 against the Lions. The Bears will roll with journeyman Brian Hoyer at Jerry's World on Sunday Night Football.
Sep 23 - 1:28 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Jay Cutler (thumb) is "pushing to play" Sunday, and "politicking" the coaching staff.

We don't doubt it, but it seems pretty clear that Cutler won't be ready for Sunday Night Football. Master strategist, in his mind, John Fox has yet to rule his quarterback out, but all signs suggest it will be Brian Hoyer under center against the Cowboys. Daily Slant: Even if Cutler is somehow able to play, the Bears offense has been a mess and it's not likely to improve at all if Brian Hoyer is under center. The Cowboys D/ST unit isn't a cash game play this week, but they are an interesting GPP punt for a few reasons. The Bears have scored on just 13% of their possessions this season, the lowest rate in the league, and they've also lead the league in sack rate allowed (12.1%) on their drop backs. Getting pressure on the QB is paramount for D/ST success, as it breeds turnovers.
