Trestman: Injured Cutler remains Bears' No. 1 QB

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman says Jay Cutler will not play this week but remains the team's No. 1 quarterback despite Josh McCown's strong play.

He also says star linebacker Lance Briggs remains "a couple of weeks away" from returning from a small fracture in his left shoulder that has sidelined him the past three games. The Bears expected him to miss six weeks, and Trestman says he remains on schedule.

Chicago's next game is at St. Louis this weekend.

Cutler's status has been a topic of conversation in Chicago in recent weeks because of his expiring contract, groin and ankle injuries and McCown's performance. But Trestman insisted he's in no danger of losing his job and remains "the quarterback of our football team."
