After missing the game in Green Bay after suffering a groin injury in their previous game, at Washington, Chicago Bears quarterback looks to come this Sunday. According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Cutler plans to play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions

Although the initial reports on Cutler’s injury suggested that he’d miss four weeks, the news that he plans to miss just one game comes as no surprise. Cutler said last week that was his goal, and there have been no setbacks since then.

The question, however, is whether the Bears’ medical staff and coaching staff agree with Cutler’s self assessment. Cutler may think he can give it a go against the Lions, but if his mobility is limited and he can’t avoid Detroit’s pass rush, he won’t be doing his team any favors by toughing it out through a groin injury.
