LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is out of a hard cast and wearing a small brace on his injured left ankle.
Coach Marc Trestman says Wednesday that Cutler remains week to week with a high ankle sprain. The Bears have ruled him out for Sunday's game at St. Louis, and Trestman would not say if he expects his quarterback to play the following week at Minnesota.
Cutler tore his left groin muscle against Washington on Oct. 20 and missed the next game at Green Bay two weeks later. He returned earlier than expected against Detroit on Nov. 10, only to injure his ankle in the first half and sit out the game's final drive.
He did not play in last week's overtime win over Baltimore.
