Jay Cutler will not play against the Panthers on Sunday, the Bears have announced. Backup Todd Collins will get the start while Cutler sits after suffering a concussion against the Giants last week.
Cutler participated in practice on a limited basis Wednesday and met with both team doctors and an independent specialist after Wednesday's practice. According to a team spokesperson, the medical experts agreed that Cutler should not play this weekend.
They also said, according to the spokesperson, that Cutler should continue "exerting" himself while practicing on a limited basis as part of his recovery, that his recovery was progressing satisfactorily and that he would be re-evaluated next week.
