Cutler returned to the practice field Thursday, about 2½ weeks after tearing a groin muscle during an Oct. 20 game against the Washington Redskins. The original diagnosis was for him to miss four weeks.
No. 2 quarterback Josh McCown has had great success in relief of Cutler, but Trestman said Cutler did everything in practice and expects him to be able to start.
“Jay is unique regarding he really understands his body,” Trestman said. “He understands how to take care of himself, and he’s a unique athlete. There was an incredible amount of hard work and effort that he had put in to even have a chance. We’re excited about it. It says a lot about his commitment to the team. He came in this morning, did a few of the things. The doctors said, ‘You’re good to go.'”
