Josh McCown will start for Bears in Monday’s game against Packers


Josh McCown will get the start for the Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. With Jay Cutler out due to a groin injury suffered in Week 7 the Bears will have to trust McCown to operate the offense.

Cutler is hoping to return early from his groin injury which has a four week timetable.

Monday’s start will be the first for McCown since the final game of the 2011 season against the Minnesota Vikings.

EXPECTING: Cutler & wife expecting second child

Filling in for Cutler in Week 7 he was 14-of-20 for 204 yards with one touchdown against the Redskins. Expectations should be set a bit lower in Monday’s game against the Packers.

After starting the season 3-0 the Bears are in danger of being 4-4 following Monday night.
