(WSCR) With Jay Cutler’s status uncertain for Monday’s game against the 49ers, the Bears have signed veteran back-up quarterback Josh McCown.

As a corresponding roster move, the club waived tight end Brody Eldridge.

McCown will act as a back-up to quarterback Jason Campbell.

In nine NFL seasons, McCown has started 33 of the 50 games he’s played in. He was signed by the Bears in 2011 after Cutler sustained a season-ending thumb injury.

In three games (two starts) for the Bears last season, McCown completed 35-of-55 passes for 414 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions, including 470 total yards (402 passing and 68 rushing) in his two starts.
