Just minutes before the Bears and Packers kicked off their much-anticipated Monday night matchup, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported the Bears are expecting Cutler to return next week from a torn groin. Cutler was slated to miss approximately four weeks with the injury.



Who knows if Cutler will end up playing, but that does actually fit in with the two-week timeline Dr. Brandon Marshall has been saying.

It'd be hard to see the Bears taking a major risk with Cutler and throw him out there unless he was definitely healthy and even if he does practice this week, there could be a setback.

So take this with a grain of salt, but just the mere fact we're talking about Cutler's return already is a good sign for the Bears.
