CHICAGO - Chicago Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler will likely be back under center on Sunday versus the Seahawks after he was cleared to fully participate in practice following a concussion suffered in Week 4's loss to the New York Giants.

Cutler was sacked a staggering nine times in the first half of that Sunday night loss to the Giants, causing a concussion that held him out of this past Sunday's 23-6 victory over Carolina.

NFL.com reported earlier Tuesday that Cutler is expected to play after Todd Collins struggled mightily against the Panthers, throwing four interceptions while amassing just 32 yards through the air.

In three games this season, Cutler has thrown for 912 yards and a 2-to-1 touchdown-interception ratio with six touchdowns and three interceptions. The Bears (3-1) lead the NFC North by a half-game over the Green Bay Packers.
