Coach Lovie Smith told reporters Friday that Jay Cutler (concussion) is "looking good" for Week 12, but the Bears won't formally determine his status for the Vikings game until Saturday.
Beat writer Mike C. Wright considers Cutler's status less certain than Smith indicated, however. Cutler is listed as questionable, and it sounds like he has one more hurdle to overcome before receiving full medical clearance from his fourth NFL concussion. Cutler will visit an independent neurologist on Saturday. We will know for sure whether Cutler will play by Sunday morning.
