Dr. Brandon Marshall was right (as he modestly trumpeted on Wednesday): Jay Cutler is indeed back from the torn groin muscle he suffered against the Washington Redskins.

After going through a hurry up protocol of medical treatment with Bears training staff and doctors, Cutler was cleared Thursday morning to practice in full. He did in a shortened practice through mid-day and coach Marc Trestman confirmed that Cutler will start next Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

“There's nothing that he can't do physically to play the position," Trestman said.
