Quarterback Jay Cutler was out on the particular practice field at Halas Hall on Monday. He was walking around, throwing the ball and catching some passes.
Yet his comeback from a torn groin is still weeks away.
“I’m encouraged of his sense for how he’s improving, ” coach Marc Trestman said. “I don’t know if that’s a positive sign. I think we have to stay within the framework that the doctors gave us. I think that is prudent right now. And we’ll see where he is next week. ”
That platform called for Cutler to be out “at least” four weeks after tearing his groin last week against the Washington Redskins.
“He’s trying to get better as quickly as he can, ” Trestman stated. “I don’t know if he is trying to push it. He would like to be back as soon as he can. That’s just about all I can really say. But I believe we’ve got to stay in line using what the doctors have said, and when it’s better than that, certainly, we’d become happy about that. ”
Do the Bears have to remind Cutler to be cautious?
“No, he’s not doing anything the particular doctors wouldn’t have him do, ” Trestman said. “He’s not really overextending himself. ”
