Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler expects to play vs. Green Bay

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said on Monday that he should be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Packers. Cutler suffered a neck injury in a loss to the Vikings this past weekend.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler injured his neck in Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but Cutler said on Monday that he fully expects to be ready to play when the Green Bay Packers visit Soldier Field this weekend.

Cutler left the loss to Minnesota in the fourth quarter after taking a big hit from Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen. Jason Campbell entered the game and led the Bears on a touchdown drive, but Chicago failed to recover the ensuing onside kick and time ran out on the comeback attempt.

Chicago is in free fall, losing four of its last five games after starting 7-1. The Bears need Cutler at his best in order to beat the first-place Packers and halt the slide, but the quarterback has not had a lot of success against Green Bay in his career.

In a Week 2 loss to the Packers, Cutler threw one touchdown and four interceptions. The Bears are just 1-5 in their last six games against their biggest rival.
