Jay Cutler did not practice Thursday for a second straight day due to a shoulder injury, but the Bears quarterback has not yet been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Titans.
Jay Cutler did not practice Thursday for a second straight day due to a shoulder injury.
Asked if Cutler was less likely to play because he sat out again Thursday, coach John Fox said: "Not necessarily. We've got some guys who did not participate. We have this afternoon off with no meetings and whatnot but we still have Friday and Saturday to make that evaluation."
Cutler was injured in last Sunday's road loss to the Giants. On Wednesday, Fox refuted a report that the veteran quarterback would miss the rest of the season.
Receiver Eddie Royal (toe), left guard Josh Sitton (ankle) and outside linebacker Leonard Floyd (concussion) also did not practice on Thursday.
Thirteen Bears were limited, including rookie cornerback Deiondre Hall, who returned for the first time since hurting his ankle in practice the first week of October. The fourth-round pick showed promise early in the season—he intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass in a Week 4 win over the Lions—but has missed the last six games.
Other Bears who were limited Thursday were receiver Marquess Wilson (foot), tackles Bobby Massie (concussion) and Mike Adams (bicep), nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle), defensive end Mitch Unrein (back), outside linebackers Pernell McPhee (knee) and Willie Young (foot), inside linebacker Christian Jones (ankle/back), cornerbacks Tracy Porter (knee), Sherrick McManis (neck) and Cre'von LeBlanc (concussion) and defensive back Demontre Hurst (knee).
