Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler told reporters yesterday that he will be ready to play this weekend when his team faces the Green Bay Packers in a pivotal NFC North showdown, reports Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
Jay Cutler didn't look stiff Wednesday from the neck injury that knocked him out of the fourth quarter of Sunday's road loss to the Vikings and said he will be ready for Sunday's showdown with the Packers.
Cutler sustained a neck injury, that some feared to be another concussion at the time, during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s contest against the Minnesota Vikings. He received a hit, which was deemed illegal, above the neck by defensive lineman Everson Griffin. While the quarterback was able to finish the drive, he watched the remainder of the game from the sidelines.
It eventually came out that Cutler was dealing with a neck injury, and he said earlier in the week that he expected to play. It now appears that he’s upgraded himself to probable, so it’s unlikely he misses the matchup against the Packers.
