Bears will be without two key offensive pieces against Seahawks
The Chicago Bears are officially Jimmy Clausen's team this week. Coach John Fox announced that quarterback Jay Cutler is out Sunday with a hamstring injury, giving Clausen the start against the Seattle Seahawks. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week Cutler would miss at least two weeks. In Week 2 versus the Arizona Cardinals, Clausen went 14-of-23 passing for 121 yards, one interception and a 56.6 passer rating in relief of Cutler. Clausen is 1-10 as an NFL starter. His only win came over John Skelton and the Cardinals in Week 15, 2010. Fox also announced receiver Alshon Jeffery would miss Sunday's contest as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury. Jeffery missed last week's tilt with the injury.(NFL.com)
Cutler reportedly out at least two weeks-- Mon Sep 21 6:10 pm --
Jay Cutler will miss at least two weeks with his hamstring injury, sources told ESPN Insider Adam Schefter. With Cutler out, Jimmy Clausen will take over as the Bears starting quarterback.
Earlier Monday, Bears coach John Fox confirmed that medical tests showed that Jay Cutler suffered a strained hamstring in Chicago's 48-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals but did not announce a timetable for Cutler's return.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:A bad season keeps getting worse for Chicago, which will turn to Clausen this week at Seattle and next week at home versus Oakland. Clausen and all Bears outside of Matt Forte should probably be avoided in fantasy in Week 3 while the Seahawks' defense makes for a great play in all formats, including DFS.
