Jay Cutler sprained the thumb on his throwing hand in Week 2. He is still not healthy, but it's possible he will not regain that starting job when he finally returns from the injury.

News you need to know

Week 7: at Green Bay Packers

All QB vs GB

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. This is one of the storied rivalries of the NFC, so look for a spirited battle between these NFC North teams on Thursday. Brian Hoyer is the first Chicago quarterback to string together four 300+ yards-passing games in living memory - he'll be under center for this showdown in Lambeau Field. During that four-game run, Alshon Jeffery has seen 30 targets for 20/286/0 receiving; Cameron Meredith has enjoyed 33 for 26/295/1; Zach Miller has handled 29for 24/218/3; and Eddie Royal has been peppered with 25 for 21/229/1. The Bears' passing attack is faring better than the Packers' coming into Week Seven, folks. Speaking of Green Bay, they are currently 21st in the NFL averaging 266.6 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores given out vs. three interceptions and 16 sacks generated (tied for 22nd- and sixth-ranked in the NFL, respectively). Last week, rookie Dak Prescott threw 18/27 for 233 net passing yards, three TDs and one interception at Lambeau Field, taking two sacks for -14 yards. From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Green Bay has averaged 19 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (13th-least in the NFL); and 26.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (10th-most); with 5.3 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (seventh-least). This looks like a good matchup for Hoyer and company. Also, the rushing matchup is challenging this week so the Bears will likely need to throw to keep up with the Packers.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs PHI (12 / 17 / 157 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

The 2016 season has not gone well thus far for Jay Cutler. Following a fumble and an interception, Cutler left the game in the second half after suffering an injury to his right thumb. It went from bad to worse -- in short order. If he's not being sacked by a charging defender, he's scampering out of the pocket to evade the charging defender. This pretty much was the story Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. From jump street, Cutler consistently found himself under fire. There was little room to breath or room for error. Chicago's inability to block up front really changes the playbook for Jay Cutler, forcing him to get rid of the ball quickly and efficiently. The problem is Cutler doesn't make quick decisions well, nor does he throw the ball efficiently. Two games in a row now, Cutler has thrown multiple uncontested balls at the feet of his intended receiver. That's not efficient; That's borderline inexcusable. For Cutler, this season is on its way to being just like every other season -- mediocre.

2016 Week 1 vs HOU (16 / 29 / 216 / 1 / 1 pass, 2 / 12 / 0 rush)

Once again, it was a tale of two halves for Jay Cutler. In the first half of Sunday's 23-14 loss to the Texans, Cutler confidently moved the offense down the field and positioned his team in the lead after the first two quarters. Cutler connected on two deep shots to Alshon Jeffery and also found his main man Eddie Royal on a few short routes that turned into decent-sized gains.  Cutler looked solid in the first, despite fumbling a snap on 4th & 1 (The snap looked questionable, to be fair to Cutler). Then, it all turned badly in the second half, when the offensive line suddenly forgot how to block for its quarterback. It hardly mattered what Cutler did after taking the snap; Texans defenders seemingly found a way to create some form of pressure. Without time to survey the field, Cutler was a sitting duck. The Bears' inexperienced offensive line failed its quarterback in a bad way.  Not only did the offensive line kick the bucket in Week 1, so did second-year-rookie Kevin White, who looked every bit a rookie. Normally you can point a finger whenever an interception is thrown, and you can point a finger at White for Cutler's long pick. The 2015 first-round pick cut off his route and stood still instead of cutting outside, where Cutler inevitably fired the ball. It will take these two some time to get on the same page, keep in mind. Cutler's final stat line, 16 for 29 for 216 yards with one touchdown and one interception, is pretty Cutler-y. This game should tell you no more or no less than what you already knew about this very polarizing quarterback.
