Jay Cutler injury update: Cleared to play and returns to fantasy radar

Jonathan Daniel

Jay Cutler has been cleared to play and will start on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been cleared by a neurologist and will make the start on Sunday against the Minnestoa Vikings.

Cutler suffered a concussion against the Houston Texans and missed last week's game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was limited in practice all week, but he will be returning to game action. Jason Campbell has served as Chicago's starting quarterback in Cutler's absence.

Fantasy Impact: Jay Cutler was a hot and cold fantasy quarterback throughout the season before getting injured. The Bears offense was miserable with Campbell at the helm, so Cutler's return will be gladly welcomed.

Cutler will return to QB2 status and will boost the value of the entire Bears passing game.
