LAKE FOREST — Bears quaraterback Jay Cutler returned to practice on Thursday, less than three weeks after tearing his groin in Washington.

In the portion of practice open to the media, Cutler took part in stretching and then throwing drills with Josh McCown and quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh.

On Wednesday, Marc Trestman said, “There is no gray area in this decision. The doctors are either going to say he can play, and that means he can play without any sense that there’s going to be … nobody can ever predict 100 percent and we wouldn’t do that either, but certainly that the doctors feel that he would be ready to play, and play at full speed. If he is then he’ll go. That’s really it.”

He added that two practices would be enough for Cutler to be ready, if cleared by the doctors, to start on Sunday against the Lions.

We'll learn more about his participation in team drills and his status for Sunday after practice when Marc Trestman addresses the media.
