Cutler Cleared To Start Vs. Vikings

CHICAGO (CBS) — Looking to bounce back from last week’s dismal 32-7 loss to the 49ers, the Bears will have Jay Cutler back under center against the Vikings on Sunday.

CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports Cutler has passed the various concussion tests this week, and will start on Sunday.

“Cutler has come through the concussion tests and practice and passed all protocols,” La Canfora wrote.

Cutler missed Monday’s game against the 49ers, and backup Jason Campbell was sacked six times en route to a 32-7 drubbing by San Francisco. Cutler suffered a concussion two weeks ago against the Texans, missing the second half of that game, a 13-6 loss.

Earlier this week, Cutler said latest concussion wouldn’t change his style of play.

“Going forward, I’m going to play the same way I play,” Cutler said. “And hopefully I don’t get anther concussion.”
