LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler says he expects to play this week against Green Bay.

Cutler says ``unless something drastic happens, absolutely'' he will be ready to play against the Packers after leaving Sunday's loss at Minnesota with a sore neck. He says he got treatment on Monday and ``should be ready to go later in the week.''

Cutler spoke during his weekly appearance on the ``Waddle & Silvy Show'' on Chicago's WMVP-AM 1000.

Cutler was hurt during a hit from Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen in the fourth quarter, and he stayed in for the remainder of the drive before coming out. Cutler missed a game against San Francisco on Nov. 19 because of a concussion.
