Bears QB likely to return after missing four gamesQuarterback Jay Cutler looks just about ready to return to action for the Chicago Bears. For linebacker Lance Briggs, the wait might continue.
Coach Marc Trestman is optimistic Cutler will return from an ankle injury this week against the Cleveland Browns. He was set to work with receivers after Wednesday’s walkthrough, and Trestman said the Bears will know Thursday if he’s ready to start.
“We’re not going to let it hang through the week,’’ he said. “The starter has got to get the work. So we’ll make that decision tomorrow.’’
Cutler missed the past four games with a high left ankle sprain and also sat out one with a groin injury. Veteran Josh McCown has played well in his place, but the Bears have repeatedly said they will go with Cutler once he’s ready.
