Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler returned to practice in a limited role on Wednesday, reports Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times

Cutler participated in drills for the first time since sustaining a hamstring strain during the team's 48–23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 20. The injury occurred as Cutler attempted to make a tackle after throwing an interception to Arizona safety Tony Jefferson

Cutler has struggled so far this season, completing just 57.8 percent of his passes and throwing as many interceptions as touchdowns (2). 

Jimmy Clausen has started in place of Cutler, failing to throw a touchdown in more than six quarters played. He is 23-for-40 with 184 yards and one interception in two losses. 

Chicago's 0–3 record is the team's worst start to a season since 2003. 

The Bears play the Oakland Raiders (2–1) at home on Sunday.
