Bears’ Smith on Cutler: ‘We’ll never put a guy at risk’
(MCT) CHICAGO — Although coach Lovie Smith said quarterback Jay Cutler is feeling “a lot better” after suffering a concussion against the Texans, the Bears coach declined to speculate on Cutler’s status for Monday night’s matchup versus the 49ers.
But Smith said the team would proceed with caution considering Cutler’s concussion history. Cutler suffered a concussion during an October 2010 loss to the Giants and missed one game. He also had at least one concussion in college at Vanderbilt and at least one while a member of the Broncos.
“We’ll never put a guy at risk,” Smith said. “No game is that important for us. Of course the players have always come first with everything that we do.”
