Briggs and Cutler Still Out in the Cold

Rich Campbell at the Chicago Tribune reports the both Jay Cutler and Lance Briggs will remain out on Monday. Briggs's absence for a seven week extends his recovery time past the four to six week period which was anticipated when the injury occurred.

Head coach Marc Trestman is undoubtedly being cautious after Cutler tried to come back from his groin injury early against the Lions only to injure his ankle. However it's worth noting that the low temperature downtown will be 8 degrees on Monday night and it's possible that the Bears would like to have neither coming back for their first game from injuries in such cold weather.
