|Bears' Culter to Sit Out Carolina Game
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will sit out this week's game at Carolina because of a concussion.
Bears spokesman Scott Hagel says Cutler was examined by both team and independent doctors on Wednesday after practicing on a limited basis.
Hagel says the doctors ``all agreed that participation in practice'' went well but felt that sitting out ``was the right way to go.'' He says Cutler will practice on Thursday and Friday, and his status will be re-evaluated early next week.
Cutler was injured in last week's 17-3 loss to the New York Giants, when he was sacked nine times in the first half. Veteran Todd Collins, who took over to start the second half and left that game with a stinger, will start against the Panthers.
