Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is "getting better" after sustaining a concussion in last weekend's loss to the Houston Texans, coach Lovie Smith said on Wednesday. Smith said Cutler was still being evaluated and did not rule him out for Monday night's game with the San Francisco 49ers.
Cutler was injured last weekend in the first half and replaced by Jason Campbell, who threw for 94 yards on 11 of 19 passing. Cutler's status will be determined later in the week.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should be preparing to go without Cutler in Week 11, even if he improves during the week. Smith admitted Wednesday that he was concerned about the concussion but didn't want to look to far into the future.
Cutler is normally a No. 2 fantasy option at quarterback because of his chemistry with Brandon Marshall. Both players would take a fantasy hit if Cutler doesn't play this week. Campbell is not a viable fantasy option as a replacement.
