Cutler practices again, signs point to Cleveland start

Quarterback Jay Cutler was officially “limited” in practice on Friday. Considerably more important, however: He practiced. Period.

And that is perhaps the most encouraging because Cutler did not need the day off after testing his high-ankle sprain in work on Thursday. All of which represents a positive sign for Cutler returning to start the Dec. 15 game at Cleveland.

“He worked consistently today,” coach Marc Trestman said. “He did not seem to be any more inhibited today than he was yesterday. I didn’t have any sense … the work he put in a limited fashion yesterday, it didn’t look like he was inhibited at all today.”

Cutler missed the Nov. 4 game with a groin tear, then came back to start against Detroit but could not finish because of the ankle injury. He has not played since Nov. 10.
