Bears quarterback Jay Cutler won't play against 49ers

The Bears announced that quarterback Jay Cutler will not play Monday night against the 49ers. Jason Campbell will start at quarterback for the Bears.

Cutler suffered a concussion Sunday night against the Texans, and has not practiced this week. The Bears believe Cutler incurred the concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit from Tim Dobbins late in the second quarter.

Cutler remained on the field and finished the half, but was sidelined the final two quarters after displaying concussion-like symptoms in the locker room at halftime.

Cutler must be cleared by Bears team physicians and independent neurological consultants before he can return to practice or a game.
