Jay Cutler took a vicious hit from Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen in Sunday's 21-14 loss, leaving everyone worried the quarterback suffered yet another concussion.

He's had a history of them throughout his career, even going back to his Vanderbilt days, but Cutler was lucky to avoid one on this play.

Instead, Cutler said the injury was neck related, not head related.

"It was neck-related," he said. "I was getting spasms. I wasn't going to help anybody being out there."

He's calling the injury a sore neck and expects to play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

However, playing against the Packers hasn't been Cutler's strong suit. Last time against them, Cutler was sacked several times, as well as intercepted on a few occasions in prime time.

And of course, it seems as if Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson will be back on the field for this one. This mean J'Marcus Webb will have his hands full looking for redemption after Matthews made him look nonexistent the last time the two faced off.

The important thing for the Bears is that Cutler will be on the field barring a setback. If the team has any hope of winning — and remaining in the playoff picture — they'll need their quarterback on the field. The team's defensive leader Brian Urlacher is already out of action, and they can't afford to lose their leader on the offensive side of the ball.
