Bears announce Jay Cutler cleared to practice in full today

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been cleared by team and independent doctors to participate in practice today, a team spokesman announced.

It's yet another important step for Cutler, who was limited in practice last week but didn't play Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Cutler suffered a concussion late in the first half of the Oct. 3 loss to the New York Giants.

Veteran Todd Collins started in Cutler's place against the Panthers, and he performed miserably, eventually getting pulled for Caleb Hanie. Still, thanks to a breakout performance by the running backs, the Bears overwhelmed the Panthers 23-6.

Hanie will serve as the backup to Cutler Sunday against the 2-2 Seattle Seahawks.

Good cause Todd Collins was bad. Caleb Haine needs a little more time to be NFL ready in this system. Heck Haine doesnt get any reps in practice so kinda hard to do.

Maybe Jay Cutler have learned a lesson in this system if there is nothing over the top dump off the ball. Take a page outta Kyle Orton's book. Waite I know why Jay doesnt dump off the ball cause he is to good to do that. Jay Cutler is a gun slinger. Well with this patched work of a line he will need to dumb it down and dump it off to last this season.
