ARLINGTON, TX – When asked by reporters either a Bears’ starting quarterback would transport let alone play on Wednesday, John Fox gave a standard answer.
“We’ll know 90 mins before a kickoff,” pronounced a routinely tight-lipped manager about harmed starter Jay Cutler.
A ride damage on his throwing palm forced him out of Monday’s detriment to a Eagles during a finish of a third quarter. While a damage didn’t need medicine it did keep Cutler out of use for a whole week.
But maybe Fox left a doorway open for a quarterback to lapse to a lineup Sunday night opposite a Cowboys – despite a slight one.
When a Bears expelled a names of a players who did not transport to Arlington Cutler’s name was not on a list. Only defensive lineman Eddie Goldman (ankle) and using behind Ka’Deem Carey (hamstring) didn’t make a outing to a south withdrawal a probability open.
Still it stays rarely doubtful deliberation Cutler’s miss of appearance in any use this week during Halas Hall. Typically if a actor misses a whole week they don’t play in a diversion that week.
In that box Brian Hoyer would step adult and be a starter for a Bears opposite a Cowboys. Oddly adequate it would be a second time in as many years that a group would start a backup in a third diversion after an damage in a second.
Jimmy Clausen filled in for a harmed Cutler final year in Seattle and a Bears mislaid to a Seahawks 26-0.
Hoyer has some-more diversion knowledge than Clausen did, personification in 25 games over a final dual seasons with Cleveland and Houston. Last year Hoyer started 11 games for a Texans, throwing for 2,606 yards and 19 touchdowns compared to 7 interceptions as a Texans won a AFC South.
Filling in for Cutler in a 4th entertain opposite a Eagles on Monday Hoyer finished 9-of-12 passes for 78 yards.
