LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a high left ankle sprain in Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions and is on a “week-to-week” timetable for recovery, the team announced Monday.
Cutler’s latest setback came 21 days after the quarterback returned from tearing a groin muscle in his left leg on Oct. 20 in a loss to the Washington Redskins.
In three games filling in for Cutler, McCown has completed 42 of 70 passes for 538 yards, four touchdowns and a passer rating of 103.1.
McCown entered Sunday’s loss with 2:17 left to play and led the Bears on a 10-play, 74-yard scoring drive capped by his 11-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall.
