Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's (concussion) status for Week 11 is unknown at this point due to a concussion; however, the team has confidence in backup QB Jason Campbell to lead the team moving forward. "Jason Campbell is more than capable," WR Brandon Marshall said. "(Cutler is) our leader, he's the heart and soul of the offense. We want him to have a speedy recovery. There was no heads down when Jay was down. There was no complaining. We have a starting quarterback (Campbell) as a backup. We are fortunate to have him and there will be not drop off in our offense."
