Bears fans no doubt will be happy to hear that quarterback Jay Cutler practiced without restrictions Thursday in preparation for Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers.
Cutler suffered bruised ribs on a vicious but legal sack by Ndamukong Suh in Monday night’s win over the Lions. The quarterback appreciated the ovations he received from Bears fans when he jogged off the field and later when he returned to the game after missing only one play.
Asked about his fan support, Cutler said: “That was good to hear. It hasn’t always been great around here. But they’re coming around slowly but surely.”
Cutler has been hosting a weekly one-hour radio show on ESPN this season. Asked if he feels whether fans are warming up to him because of the show, Cutler said: “Winning helps too. Anytime you win, that’s going to be a cure-all. After the Packers week, we were back at DEFCON 5.
“The radio show doesn’t hurt, though, by any means. It’s a fun hour. The guys I’m working with (Tom Waddle and Marc Silverman) are doing a good job and the fans seem to like it as well.”
