It looks like the Chicago Bears will be without starting quarterback Jay Cutler for at least two weeks.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Cutler will miss two weeks due to a strained hamstring, meaning he will miss the games against the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders. He could return for the week five game at Kansas City.
Bears QB Jay Cutler will miss at least 2 weeks with hamstring injury, per sources. Jimmy Clausen now starts. The Bears declined comment.

Schefter sent the tweet out just a few hours after head coach John Fox confirmed Cutler had a sprained hamstring in his news conference. Fox was very mum about Cutler’s status, to no surprise, saying that he hasn’t decided on who will be the starter Sunday. He also did not give a timetable for Cutler’s return, which coincides with how Schefter ended the tweet: “The Bears declined to comment.”
The Bears offense puttered when quarterback Jimmy Clausen took over in the first half and failed to capitalize on two big turnovers the Cardinals committed. Clausen threw for 121 yards, completing 14 of his 23 attempts and also threw one interception.
