Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) has yet to be cleared to return to practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Fantasy Tip: All signs point to another start for Josh McCown. The way he's played, the Bears don't really have a reason to rush Cutler back. Cutler may return in Week 15, but don't put your chips on it.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) said he's been feeling better, but head coach Marc Trestman is still referring to him as "week-to-week." Cutler was hoping to return in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys. "Getting better," Cutler said. "Still got to talk to the doctors, gotta go through some stuff this week. I don't know. I think if we're gonna have any shot at playing, I'm gonna have to practice (this week). I still feel like I'm gonna get back here really soon. I want to play. It's just the trainers and doctors and going through the scenario we've got to go through." Cutler said he ran on a treadmill and felt fine Monday, Dec. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Don't count on Cutler being ready for Monday Night Football. Josh McCown has looked just fine in Cutler's absence and has a nice matchup on hand against the Cowboys, making him a midrange QB1 play.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) said he hopes to play Week 14 but has not been cleared to play at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor Cutler's practice participation this week to see if he has any chance to play. If he is able to play, he would be a risky low-end No. 1 quarterback because he is coming back from injury. Josh McCown would get another start if Cutler remains out and should be considered a solid No. 1 quarterback option.

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jay Cutler (ankle) is not expected to play in the team's Week 13 game.
Fantasy Tip: Josh McCown likely will receive another start and can be a starting option for owners this week.
Mon, 18 Nov 2013 10:44:10 -0800
A Chicago Bears source said there is no way that QB Josh McCown could push for QB Jay Cutler's job if he continues to play well. "No, Jay is our quarterback," the team source said.
Sun, 17 Nov 2013 07:08:31 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's job is not in jeopardy by the strong play of QB Josh McCown while Cutler works his way back from injury.
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 11:28:37 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle, groin) is considered week-to-week because of the high ankle sprain he suffered in the team's Week 10 game.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Josh McCown will start at least this week against the Baltimore Ravens and could get a few more starts depending on Cutler's recovery. McCown should be considered a borderline starting quarterback for desperate owners or as a fill in for bye-week starters.
Sun, 10 Nov 2013 12:57:19 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) limped off the field in the Week 10 game, and his return is questionable. QB Josh McCown has entered the game.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:31:56 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (groin) will miss at least four weeks because of a torn groin muscle.
Fantasy Tip: Josh McCown likely will fill in as the starting quarterback while Cutler is out of the lineup. McCown will not be more than a matchup play in fantasy leagues while he is starting.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:19:37 -0700
The Chicago Bears are awaiting the MRI results on Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (groin) Monday, Oct. 21, and they are bracing themselves for bad news. Cutler could be out for most of the remaining 10 weeks of the season if it's a serious groin injury. QB Josh McCown would take over for Cutler if he has to miss any time. The Bears would likely re-sign QB Jordan Palmer to back up McCown.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Cutler, starting making plans to add another quarterback. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, as well as Martellus Bennett, will likely suffer if Cutler misses most of the rest of the year.
