Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was diagnosed only a few days ago with a torn muscle in his groin, and in head coach Marc Trestman's words, Cutler would be out "a minimum of four weeks."
Brandon Marshall begs to differ. Appearing on MSNBC, Marshall said he thinks you can slice that timetable for Cutler's return in half.
"I predict Jay Cutler will be back in two weeks," Marshall said on the "Andrea Mitchell Reports" to promote mental health advocacy. "They say four to six (weeks), but we got the right people around Jay right now. So well get it done. Two weeks."
The Bears are on bye this week and follow that in Week 10 with a Monday night game at Lambeau Field. Josh McCown replaced Cutler after he went down against the Washington Redskins and is expected to be the starter until Cutler returns.
But that date could be sooner than expected, if Marshall is right.
