Let's tie up two semi-loose ends before starting the trek out east.
Indications that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler would be cleared for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings have proved accurate. Cutler passed all neurological tests Saturday and will start after a one-game absence. Here is the ESPNChicago.com report. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports had the news.
Vikings receiver Percy Harvin (ankle) never appeared close to being ready for Sunday's game, and on Saturday he was downgraded to out. He won't even make the trip to Chicago, calling into question whether he'll be ready for the Dec. 2 game against the Green Bay Packers.
