  Bears | Jay Cutler will be placed on IR    Thu Dec 1, 02:42 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery Saturday, Dec. 3, to repair his labrum injury and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: With Cutler out, Matt Barkley is the man under center and while he was serviceable and faces a mediocre San Francisco defense, his upside is low and he's not worth more than a QB4. Even as an emergency option, he's not worth a start.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 25, and is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

  Bears | Jay Cutler remains sidelined    Thu Nov 24, 09:15 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Bears head coach John Fox has not ruled Cutler out for Week 12. It seems like Cutler would be a long-shot to play this week, so the Bears are most likely going to go with Matt Barkley. Make sure to downgrade all expectations for the Bears offensive players if (when?) Barkley starts.

  Bears | Jay Cutler not ruled out    Wed Nov 23, 02:46 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, but head coach John Fox has not ruled Cutler out for Week 12.

Footballguys view: It just doesn't seem like Cutler is going to play, but nothing would surprise us with Fox and his clandestine nature when it comes to injury. Fox said Cutler's injury is not season-ending and that Cutler is considered day-to-day.

  Bears | Jay Cutler believed to have torn labrum    Tue Nov 22, 12:00 PM

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is believed to have a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He's receiving a second opinion.

Footballguys view: The second opinion may reveal the same thing, and this means Cutler is likely to be shut down for the year. Outside of RB Jordan Howard, we can't trust any Bears player with Cutler out, Alshon Jeffery suspended and Zach Miller down for the year.

  Bears | Jay Cutler may be out for season    Mon Nov 21, 05:15 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 11 and the Bears are deciding if the injury will end Cutler's season.

Footballguys view: And the bad news Bears get more bad news here. QB Matt Barkley would start in Week 12 if Cutler is ruled out. We'll know more about Cutler's availability in the near future.

  Bears | Jay Cutler silenced in second half    Sun Nov 20, 05:32 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler threw for 252 yards on 17-of-30 passing on Sunday, Nov. 20, in a 22-16 loss to the New York Giants. Cutler threw one touchdown, but the Bears did not score in the second half.

Footballguys view: Cutler started strong with short passing and a nice touchdown pass to Zach Miller, but he slowed down and wasn't able to put together a strong fantasy day in less than optimal wind conditions. He'll just be a low-end streaming option against Tennessee next week.

  Bears | Jay Cutler will keep starting job    Mon Nov 14, 03:46 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the starting quarterback, according to head coach John Fox.

Footballguys view: Cutler sticks as the starter in what should be his final season with the Bears. He's going to be without star WR Alshon Jeffery (PEDs) for a month, so Cutler will have to find someone else to lock onto. Lord only knows what kind of performances we're in for with games against the Giants, Titans, 49ers and Lions coming up.

  Bears | Jay Cutler struggles in loss    Sun Nov 13, 05:11 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler fumbled twice and threw two interceptions Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 36-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Cutler's best play of the game was a hail mary. In one of his best matchups all year, Cutler was a dud, and it's worrisome for the whole Bears offense heading into a matchup on the road against the improved Giants defense.

  Bears | Jay Cutler may have been done    Thu Oct 27, 11:42 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) could have been done as the starting quarterback if QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) weren't lost for the season because head coach John Fox allegedly told friends he was done with Cutler, according to two league sources. Cutler is in the final season of guaranteed money in his contract.

Footballguys view: We've long thought there was no real love between Fox and Cutler, so this is no surprise. Cutler could be a decent starter somewhere and there will be teams in the market, so we expect him to be in a new jersey next season.

  Bears | Chicago to give Matt Barkley long look?    Sat Oct 22, 08:35 PM

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley could remain the starting quarterback after QB Jay Cutler (thumb) returns from injury, according to beat writer Mark Potash.

Footballguys view: First, Cutler wasn't going to get his job back because of Brian Hoyer. Now, it could be Matt Barkley who keeps Cutler on the bench. With the way that Barkley played on Thursday night against the Packers, it won't be for long.

  Bears | Chicago not addressing QB situation    Mon Oct 10, 01:06 PM

Bears QB Brian Hoyer threw for over 300 yards for the third time in as many starts in a Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but head coach John Fox refused to speculate on his quarterback's job status going forward because Jay Cutler (thumb) 'is not healthy'.

Footballguys view: AS of right now, it looks like this is Hoyer's job to lose. Fox likes to keep things close to the vest, so nobody should be sure of what's to come with the Bears. Hoyer should stick as the starter with the way that he's been playing.

Footballguys view: The Bears pass rush is depleted right now and their secondary can't afford to lose the help against Andrew Luck. It could be another big day at home for Luck and TY Hilton.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) has not practiced all week and is considered doubtful for Week 5 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

  Bears | Brian Hoyer has chance to remain starter    Mon Oct 3, 03:35 PM

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer appears to have a realistic shot at remaining the team's starter even after Jay Cutler (thumb) returns, according to head coach John Fox.

Footballguys view: Fox said the same thing last week....and it should come as no surprise. Cutler has always been on shaky ground with Fox, and the good vibes created from last year (with OC Adam Gase) have probably worn off. You can feel free to use Hoyer as a streaming QB in easier matchups.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29. Cutler was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, but head coach John Fox said Cutler did not suffer any setbacks.

Footballguys view: Looks like it's Hoyer-Time again but Brian Hoyer is behind a bad offensive line with an inconsistent Kevin White and a banged up Alshon Jeffery. He does have a solid tight end in Kellen Davis, but we would avoid Hoyer as anything but a QB3.

  Bears | Jay Cutler not guaranteed starting job    Wed Sep 28, 12:00 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is not guaranteed to be the starter whenever he's medically cleared to return, according to head coach John Fox. Cutler apparently pushed to start in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys but was not cleared.

Footballguys view: The Fox/Cutler relationship has been an interesting one to watch. Last year, Cutler seemed to win his coach over as Fox didn't seem too excited to have Cutler on the team when he took over. Now, Cutler may have fallen out of favor. It really depends on how Brian Hoyer continues to play in Cutler's absence. Either way, we think the Bears (and Fox) look to find a new QB this offseason.

  Bears | Jay Cutler out 2-3 weeks    Wed Sep 21, 08:17 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is expected to miss two to three weeks, according to a source. His timeline depends on how he heals over the next three days.

Footballguys view: Cutler was uninspiring against the Eagles in Week 2...before and after the injury. The Bears are going to turn to Brian Hoyer while Cutler is out. He's a seasoned veteran who should be able to keep Alshon Jeffery fed.

  Bears | Jay Cutler won't need surgery    Tue Sep 20, 02:16 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) will not need surgery on his sprained thumb, according to head coach John Fox.

Updating earlier reports, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is expected to miss a period of time, and the Bears are preparing for his absence. The question that remains is whether Cutler has surgery to repair the injury.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about his expected absence as more information is revealed about this injury. In the meantime, veteran QB Brian Hoyer takes over as the starter if/when Cutler is out. Hoyer may give Texans fans nightmares, but he's better than a lot of backups out there. We're not rushing to get Hoyer at all, but we feel he should do enough to keep properly feeding WR Alshon Jeffery for fantasy owners.
