Backup Josh McCown will start again in Cutler's place.
Cutler sustained a high ankle sprain soon after returning from a different injury in in week 10. He has been able to return to practice in a limited capacity, but remains week to week.
Head coach Marc Trestman addressed Cutler's status after practice this week:
"There's a lot of clarity to Jay's and our communication," Trestman said. "Jay's very clear on where he is medically. We've been very, very clear that he's got to be released by the doctors before he can play. He's come to terms with that. He's a strong-willed, strong-minded guy. He can't control this decision on Monday other than to continue to work at his rehab."– via ESPNChicago.com
The Bears hope to get back over .500, when they take on the Dallas Cowboys Monday night.
