Bears' Cutler week-to-week

The Sports NetworkNovember 10, 2013 

Lake Forest, IL ( - Jay Cutler is back on the shelf.

The Chicago Bears starting quarterback is considered week-to-week with a high ankle sprain.

Cutler suffered the injury in Sunday's 21-19 home loss to the Detroit Lions. He had been cleared to play in the critical NFC North showdown after missing a Week 9 contest at Green Bay with a groin injury that was expected to sideline him for a minimum of four weeks.

The Bears also announced Monday that cornerback Charles Tillman suffered a triceps injury against the Lions and has been placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.

However, for Tillman to play again this season, the Bears have to reach the playoffs.

Sunday's loss to Detroit dropped Chicago to 5-4, one game behind the first- place Lions.
