(CBS) Backup quarterback Josh McCown will get snaps with the Bears’ No. 1 offense in Wednesday’s practice, 670 The Score’s Zach Zaidman reported Tuesday.

McCown came in Sunday’s game in the fourth quarter after starter Caleb Hanie was benched. Hanie is 0-4 as the Bears’ starting quarterback since Jay Cutler went down with a broken thumb. The Bears, who were once 7-3, have seen their playoff hopes completely vanish in that time.

Speaking to the media Monday, head coach Lovie Smith did not commit to either quarterback as the team’s starter against the Packers Sunday, but said he would have more information Wednesday.
