The Bears still have a couple of days left until they need to submit a final injury report for Week 11, but they aren't going to try to keep anybody guessing about the status of Jay Cutler. They have ruled Cutler out for Monday's game versus the 49ers. Jason Campbell will get his first start of the season as a result. Cutler suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Texans, the third concussion of his pro career.
We'll see if Cutler can get cleared for Week 12 when he would have a nice matchup at home versus the Vikings. I don't trust Campbell at all against the Niners. While their run defense has been exposed in recent weeks, I expect San Fran to stack the box, stop Matt Forte as much as possible and force Campbell to beat them. I would still start Brandon Marshall , however. I have to believe that Chicago's coaches will find ways to get him involved, no matter what.
