LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Quarterback Jay Cutler is set to return to the Chicago Bears' lineup.
Coach Marc Trestman says Cutler will start Sunday at Cleveland after missing the previous four games with a high left ankle sprain.
Josh McCown, who played well in his absence, goes back to a reserve role.
Cutler went through a full practice on Thursday after working out with the receivers following a walkthrough, and got the green light to start this week. Linebacker Lance Briggs participated on a limited basis and Trestman was not optimistic about him returning from his shoulder injury against the Browns.
