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. Linebacker Lance Briggs participated on a limited basis and Trestman was not optimistic about him returning from his shoulder injury against the Browns. The Bears and Lions share the NFC North lead with 7-6 records and three games remaining.
