Jay Cutler cleared to play, will start versus Minnesota

Jay Cutler will start against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The Chicago Bears quarterback has passed all of his concussion tests thus clearing him to play. Cutler had been out since a helmet to helmet hit from Tim Dobbins of the Houston Texas on Nov. 11.

The Bears lost to the San Francisco in their most recent game, 32-7, with Jason Campbell taking the snaps at quarterback. While Campbell was not very effective all of the blame can not go in his direction as the offensive line continues to be a weakness for the Bears.

With Cutler back the Bears will take on a Vikings defense who is 10th in yards allowed and 13th in points allowed. (22.1)

At 7-3 the Bears are in position for a wild-card spot but, with two games against Minnesota and games against Green Bay and Seattle, they can hardly afford to take it easy.

In Cutler’s nine starts he has thrown for 1,814 yards to go with 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
