NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is reporting that QB Jay Cutler is cleared to practice on Wednesday and should be on the field as the Bears play host to the Seahawks on Sunday.
This is a good matchup for Cutler because the Seahawks defense ranks next to last defending the pass.
Cutler’s return comes just at the right time as more quarterbacks continue to be felled by injuries — the latest being Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. Quarterbacks are certainly at a premium and the days of rolling with one top-flight quarterback and not carrying a backup on your bench appear to be a thing of the past.
But if you are still looking for quarterback help, a couple of names on the waiver wire this week could be Vince Young and Matt Cassel. Young has a red-letter matchup against the Jaguars this week, which has become a must-start fantasy option. Young has struggled in the past against the Jaguars, but the Titans do have some emerging talent such as Kenny Britt making the passing attack a touch more dangerous.
Well, dangerous enough to torch the Jaguars.
