UPDATE: CHICAGO — The NFL Network is reporting that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is scheduled to start against Seattle on Sunday, two weeks after suffering a concussion.
The Bears refused to confirm Tuesday’s report by the NFL Network, which cited a league source it did not identify.
Cutler was injured during a loss to the New York Giants.
Coach Lovie Smith said Monday he was “hopeful” that Cutler would be able to play. Bears spokesman Scott Hagel said the quarterback situation will be discussed Wednesday.
The Bears beat Carolina last weekend, but backup Todd Collins threw four interceptions before getting benched for Caleb Hanie.
