It has been three days since the Chicago Bears announced the diagnosis of the injury Jay Cutler suffered Sunday. Cutler it was revealed has a torn muscle in his groin with a prognosis officially revealed by coach Marc Trestman that the quarterback will be out of action for at least four weeks.

“I’m going to tell you it’s a minimum of four weeks” Trestman declared. “And from there it will be week to week.”

But already the acceleration of Cutler’s recovery timetable has begun. On Thursday during an appearance on MSNBC receiver Brandon Marshall said Cutler will need only half that much time to get back.

"I predict Jay Cutler will be back in two weeks" Marshall said during a visit on "Andrea Mitchell Reports" to promote his recent mental health advocacy efforts. "They say four to six (weeks) but we got the right people around Jay right now. So we'll get it done. Two weeks."

ESPN’s Ed Werder also said on “SportsCenter” on Thursday that Cutler told Trestman he’d be back in action in less than four weeks.
