Demoted QB Jay Cutler says he wants to stay in Chicago
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who's been benched for Jimmy Clausen, told reporters he hopes to continue his career in Chicago. "I would like to stay here. I really like it here," Cutler said. "I love the guys in the locker room. This is where I'd like to be."

Cutler signed a seven-year, $126 million contract in January and admitted the deal came with big expectations. "I wish we would have played better, I wish I would have played better," he said. "Then we wouldn't be in this sitaution."

Cutler said he was shocked and disappointed by the benching but called head coach Marc Trestman a "heck of a quarterbacks coach." Asked if he could play for Trestman in 2015, Cutler said, "Yes. ... I think I could. I definitely could."

Cutler has accounted for 30 touchdowns and a league-high 24 turnovers for the 5-9 Bears. His contract guarantees him $15.5 million next season.

Marc Trestman: 'We need a lift at quarterback'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bears coach Marc Trestman explained his decision to bench Jay Cutler for Jimmy Clausen, saying in a press conference: "I think we need a lift at quarterback. I think we need a spark." Trestman said Cutler will be the backup quarterback Sunday against the Lions.

The coach said he's made no decision about who will start the regular-season finale.

"This is in the best interest of our football team," Trestman said. "We need some better play from the quarterback position."

Cutler leads the league with 24 turnovers. Clausen hasn't started a game since his rookie year of 2010, when he went 1-9 as a starter and played in 13 games with Carolina.

Chicago opened as a 6.5-point home underdog but is now getting 8.5 or 9 points throughout Las Vegas.

Report: Jay Cutler to be benched Week 16
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Bears will bench starting quarterback Jay Cutler Week 16 against the Lions, according to ESPN.

The move comes as a big surprise given the seven-year, $126 million contract Cutler signed in January. Cutler has had a big problem with turnovers this season, throwing 18 interceptions and fumbling 12 times. The move could mark the end of Cutler's season as the starter, and puts his future in Chicago in jeopardy. 

The team will turn to Jimmy Clausen to replace Cutler.

Report: Bears to start Jimmy Clausen Week 16
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Bears will start Jimmy Clausen Week 16 against the Lions, according to ESPN.

The move comes as a major surprise. While Jay Cutler has faced scrutiny for his body language and demeanor, the team handed him a seven-year, $126 million contract last season. The move seems to indicate that Cutler is done for the season, and puts his career with the Bears in jeopardy.

Clausen has seen time in three games this season, completing three passes in nine attempts. His last start came back in 2010, his rookie season. That year, Clausen threw for 1,558 yards, with three touchdowns against nine interceptions. 

The Lions are currently 7-point favorites, according to VegasInsider.com.

Federal judge dismisses painkillers lawsuit against NFL
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

A judge  on Wednesday dismissed a class-action suit brought by former NFL players who claimed the league illegally administered painkillers to keep players on the field, reports the Washington Post.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup ruled the issue is covered by collective bargaining and does not belong in federal court.

"In such a rough-and-tumble sport as professional football, player injuries loom as a serious and inevitable evil. Proper care of these injuries is likewise a paramount need," Alsup wrote.

"The main point of order is that the league has addressed these serious concerns in a serious way -- by imposing duties on the clubs via collective bargaining and placing a long line of health-and-safety duties on the team owners themselves. These benefits may not have been perfect, but they have been uniform across all clubs and not left to the vagaries of state common law. They are backed up by the enforcement power of the union itself and the players' right to enforce these benefits."

The suit was filed by nine former players, including Hall of Famer Richard Dent and quarterback Jim McMahon of the Super Bowl-winning Bears. The player contend the league administered painkillers "without proper prescriptions, in illegal doses, without medical supervision and with little or no explanation of risks and dangers," per the paper.

The goal, according to the players, was to "mask pain and conceal injuries," the paper reported. Alsup gave the players until Dec. 30 to file an amended complaint.

The NFL declined comment on the ruling.
