Cutler 'questionable' but doubts persist

When coach Lovie Smith says late in a game week that a player is getting better, it is typically not a good sign. So when Smith said Friday that quarterback Jay Cutler was getting better less than two weeks after his concussion in the Houston game and still has to see an independent neurologist before being cleared to play a game, the expectations for Cutler playing Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings are very much on hold.
Cutler was limited in practice on Friday.
Jay Cutler is getting better, was able to do more Friday than he did Thursday, is looking good, Smith said, adding that defensive end Shea McClellin was fully cleared from his concussion. Its looking good for those two guys.
Cutler has progressed, Smith reiterated. Its looking good, one more step to get him evaluated by an independent neurologist but besides that, he was able to do more than he was able to do yesterday.

Marian Hossa scores game winner as Blackhawks beat Bruins

BOSTON (AP) — Marian Hossa scored with 1:26 left to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 1-0 victory over the Boston Bruins on Friday night.

Scott Darling stopped 30 shots for his second shutout of the season.

Tuukka Rask made 21 saves for Boston, which has lost three straight games and four of its last five.

It was a rematch of the 2013 Stanley Cup finals, when Chicago scored twice in the final 76 seconds of the third period in Game 6 to overcome a one-goal deficit and claim the NHL title.

This time, the game was scoreless before the Blackhawks made their final charge. The puck made its way to Tanner Kero on Rask’s left; he slid it across the crease for Hossa, who put it in the net.
