Bears' Jason Campbell ready for opportunity

Jonathan Daniel

Chicago Bears quarterback Jason Campbell is ready to start if Jay Cutler is unable to go against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jason Campbell is ready to step in and start in place of an injured Jay Cutler when the Bears take on the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Nov. 19.

Cutler suffered a concussion in the Bears 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday, Nov. 11. Campbell stepped in and went 11-for-19 for 94 yards but only led the Bears to three points in the second half. Campbell believes that with a full week of practice he will be better prepared against the 49ers.

Campbell said, "It was just tough that tonight was my first reps since the season started. If I have to play, of course, during the week I will get those practice reps and get the guys used to you." Cutler's status for the Week 11 contest with the 49ers is unknown.

The Bears brought in Campbell during the offseason to serve as the backup to Cutler. Campbell spent the last two seasons in Oakland, but lost his starting job when he broke his collarbone in 2011 and the Raiders brought in Carson Palmer.
