Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said that he's feeling good and that he'll be ready to play on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPNChicago's Michael C. Wright. Cutler is dealing with both a knee injury and a neck injury this week after getting hit in the head last Sunday against the Vikings.

The Bears have been decimated by injuries over the past few weeks, to the point where head coach Lovie Smith elected to skip a full practice on Wednesday. Eleven players were listed as non-participants, as they would not have participated in practice regardless. The list included Cutler and linebackers Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher.

The Bears badly need a win over the Packers on Sunday, as they've lost four of their past five games and control of the NFC North. Green Bay, meanwhile, has won seven of their past eight games, and now hold a one-game lead over Chicago.
