Head coach Marc Trestman announced Cutler would miss Week 12's game against the Baltimore Ravens, forcing Josh McCown to make his second start of the season. The veteran backup has been good this season in limited time, completing 60-percent of his passes and throwing four touchdowns with no interceptions.
It will be interesting to see how the Bears progress if Cutler remains banged-up while McCown is thriving. It's hard to picture a scenario where he'll supplant a healthy Cutler, but with a tight playoff race on the line it could change the conversation if Cutler's not 100-percent returning from the ankle sprain.
Seneca Wallace was forced to start at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers out, and he lasted less than one half. Wallace hurt his groin and was replaced by Scott Tolzien. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy didn't say whether Wallace would be able to play this week, but did note that he could have returned against the Lions.
Green Bay also lost cornerback Casey Hayward in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. The second-year cornerback aggravated the hamstring injury that kept him out for six weeks, but there is no official update on his status yet.
