Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was limited in practice on Thursday but is still expected to start on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Cutler suffered a concussion in Week 10 against the Houston Texans and missed the game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Chicago coach Lovie Smith said Thursday (via ESPNChicago.com) that it was "looking better" for Cutler to get back onto the football field. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported this week that the Bears expected Cutler to start on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Cutler should be available for fantasy owners who want to use him this week, although it would be wise to wait for Friday's injury report before making a final decision.
Cutler has been a fringe fantasy starter most of the season and would figure to fall into that range again in Week 12.
