NFL odds Week 12: Vikings vs. Bears

Jay Cutler's uncertain status has most oddsmakers not offering a line on Sunday's Vikings-Bears game

No one yet knows whether Jay Cutler will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. That uncertainty has bookmakers unwilling to offer a line for those inclined to bet on this week's pivotal NFC North contest. Cutler was concussed against the Houston Texans on a hit by linebacker Tim Dobbins in the Bears' 13-6 Week 10 loss. He did not play against the San Francisco 49ers in the Bears' Week 11 32-7 Monday night loss.

A Bears offense led by Jason Campbell sputtered last Monday night. Chicago totaled 141 yards, passing for 58. Cutler had averaged about 181 yards per game in the passing game, and the Bears' offense was averaging about 281 yards per game through Week 11.

The Bears cleared Cutler to practice on Wednesday. For Cutler to be eligible to play, he must be examined and passed to play by an independent neurologist, per the NFL's new, more stringent concussion policy.
