Bears QB Cutler ruled out vs. Rams

The SportsXchange

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was ruled out of next Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams because he continues recovering from a high ankle sprain.

Cutler missed Sunday's overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens. He was seen in the locker room after the game wearing a hard cast on his left leg. He was injured the week before that against the Detroit Lions.

Coach Marc Trestman said Monday that Cutler is week-to-week but would not play against the Rams.

"I would rule Jay out for Sunday," he said.

Backup Josh McCown filled in for Cutler and threw for 216 yards with a touchdown and had a 92.9 passer rating in the win.

"Josh is a talented player, and he plays within himself," Trestman said. "He knows what his strengths are, and plays to his strengths. He's detail-oriented, just like Jay is."
