Bears place Forte and Cutler on IR

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune,  the Bears have placed both quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte on season ending injured reserve.

It makes sense to put Forte and Cutler on IR since the Bears will miss out on the playoffs this season and they’ll clearly not play in the final game of the regular season.

The Bears were great through the first 10 games of the season with a 7-3 record and then the wheels fell off the wagon when Cutler and then Forte went down with serious injuries.

The Bears are definitely headed in the right direction,  but they’ll have to wait for next season to try and get back to the playoffs.
