But nothing has been decided yet. Cutler is willing to promise one thing, though:
"I will play again this year," Cutler said Tuesday on ESPN 1000 via the Chicago Sun-Times. "No doubt about that."
Cutler has not been cleared to play this week, but he says he's feeling fine.
"I feel good," Cutler said. "As normal as could be. We're going through the process."
"I felt bad for the guy. It's a hard situation to be in. ... He's expected to perform at a high level. But I don't think [the offense] gave him a fair shot."
We were reminded again how Cutler carries a terrible offensive line and shaky offensive coordinator on his shoulders. It's hard to see the Bears as one of the elite teams in the NFL when that is the case.
