Report: Cutler has sprained MCL, will play Sunday

It looks like another injury will play a factor for the Bears when they face heated rival Green Bay on Sunday, as quarterback Jay Cutler will take the field with a sprained MCL, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Cutler, who missed the final minutes of last Sundays 21-14 loss to the Vikings with what was deemed a neck injury, is expected to remain the starter against the Packers. The severity of the sprain is much less than the MCL injury that forced Cutler out of the 2011 NFC Championship game, according to a team source in Brad Biggs Chicago Tribune report.

The Bears lost to the Packers 23-10 on September 13 in Green Bay, when Cutler was sacked seven times, half of which were by Clay Matthews. The health of the Packers leading pass rusher (9 sacks), is in question after Matthews has been limited the last two days in practice and has missed the previous four games with a hamstring injury.

Cutler was also limited in practice on Thursday, but all indications point to him being under center and not Bears backup Jason Campbell on Sunday.
