Cutler: Thumb Fine, Ready to Return
CHICAGO (AP) -- Quarterback Jay Cutler says his right thumb is fine and he can't wait to return to lead a significantly upgraded Bears offense.

Cutler says he's recovered from offseason surgery to repair the fractured thumb. He talked both football and diabetes awareness during a Monday appearance at a school promoting screening and treatment among young people.

Diagnosed with a Type 1 diabetes following his second NFL season, the seventh-year pro oversees a foundation dedicated to raising the profile of the disease.

He suffered the injury late last November against San Diego while making a tackle on Antoine Cason, who had just picked off the Bears quarterback.
