Jay Cutler was back home, nursing his concussion and watching as the Chicago Bears got pounded by the San Francisco 49ers, 32-7, on Monday night. Whether he'll play this weekend remains to be seen.
He told ESPN Radio he was feeling "as normal as can be" and would play again this season. He said he "can't say that for sure" when asked if he'll be ready to play against Minnesota.
Having their starting quarterback certainly would help the Bears, who are suddenly reeling after back-to-back losses to two of the league's top teams in Houston and San Francisco.
Plax is back
The Pittsburgh Steelers brought back wide receiver Plaxico Burress to provide depth at a position decimated by injuries while hoping the 35-year-old has enough gas left in the tank to give the offense an added dimension near the goal line.
