Bears’ Cutler unsure he’ll play this week

– Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he is not sure if he will play this week after missing Monday’s loss at San Francisco because of a concussion.

Cutler said on ESPN Radio’s “Waddle & Silvy” show that he’s feeling “as normal as can be” and will play again this season. But he “can’t say for sure” he’ll be ready for Minnesota on Sunday.

Cutler says he’s “going through the process” to get cleared to return. He met Monday with the doctor and still has some “hoops to jump through.”

Cutler did not travel with the team to San Francisco after being injured the previous week on a helmet-to-helmet hit by Houston’s Tim Dobbins in a loss to the Texans.

Jason Campbell started against the 49ers, and the Bears got pounded 32-7.
