Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(LAKE FOREST, Ill.) — Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman announced Thursday that quarterback Jay Cutler will not suit up for the team’s game Monday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Cutler is dealing with a high ankle sprain which has caused him to miss the Bears’ last three games. Cutler did practice in a limited capacity on Thursday.

“There’s a lot of clarity to Jay’s and our communication,” Trestman said. “Jay’s very clear on where he is medically. We’ve been very, very clear that he’s got to be released by the doctors before he can play. He’s come to terms with that. He’s a strong-willed, strong-minded guy. He can’t control this decision on Monday other than to continue to work at his rehab.”

With Cutler out, Josh McCown will start at quarterback for the third straight week. McCown has thrown for 1,461 yards, nine touchdowns and one interception this season.
