Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler passed the various concussion tests this week and will start Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, according to a CBS Sports report.
Cutler missed one game because of a concussion, the Bears' 32-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers last Monday.
"Feel good. Feel good," Cutler said earlier this week. "About as normal as can be. We're going through the process. I met with (the doctors) on Monday morning. Got a few more hoops to jump through, so we'll see how it goes this week."
Cutler was scheduled to undergo a test Saturday to determine if he would be cleared to play. Apparently, he passed the exam.
Various media reports said Cutler had practiced on a limited basis this week and met the league's concussion protocol.
He was listed as questionable on the team's injury report Friday.
Jason Campbell started in Cutler place against the 49ers and finished the Bears' previous game in which Cutler was injured in the first half.
