Chicago Bears' Jay Cutler cleared to play vs. Detroit Lions

Jay Cutler returns to the Bears Sunday - Jonathan Daniel

With a division-defining home game coming up, the Bears' Jay Cutler has outperformed expectations and will return a week earlier than expected.

Well this says it all:

Originally projected as a 4-week injury, Jay Cutler has cleared the doctor's screening Thursday morning and barring unforeseen setbacks will walk onto the field Sunday a scant 3 weeks after suffering a groin injury that left him virtually unable to walk.

It's a credit to the Bears medical staff, and particularly to Cutler, who by Trestman's account worked as hard as he could at rehabbing and getting himself ready to play. It also doesn't sound like he's going to be limited at all:

Check out these videos that were Tweeted out showing the throwing motions of both Jay Cutler and Josh McCown.

Here's McCown...

And Cutler...

What do you think about the throwing motion, is it anything to be concerned with?

It could be nothing, check this video that was linked up down in the comment section by Claudio Oliveira.
