CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago Bears might have to play without starting quarterback Jay Cutler for a few weeks, but don’t expect to see a different strategy on offense with backup Josh McCown taking snaps until Cutler is healthy.
Head coach Marc Trestman said there won’t be a lot of changes on offense while McCown is starting, given how well he did in relief for Cutler against the Redskins last week.
“I don’t know that much is going to change. I mean, I think we got a good taste of that a week ago in Washington. Josh came in, and handled the plays that we had called, and that we had in our game plan, without any reps, without any work at practice,” Trestman told WBBM Newsradio’s Josh Liss on Monday. “We feel very good that he’ll be able to distribute the ball, and manage the running game, and do the things necessary for our offense to stay on the field, and move the football, and score.”
