LAKE FOREST, Ill. John Randle Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears arent ruling out an early return for quarterback Jay Cutler from a torn groin muscle that was expected to sideline him for at least four weeks.. Cutler hopes to be back sooner than that. "Thats the goal," he said. Cutler addressed the media Tuesday for the first time since he was injured in a loss at Washington on Oct. 20. The Bears said he would miss at least a month and be evaluated week to week after that. Coach Marc Trestman said that timeline was based on what doctors said is the norm for a player with Cutlers injury. It doesnt mean he cant come back sooner. He also said the doctors will decide when Cutler is ready. "It could happen faster," Trestman said. "Jays optimistic; we all are. But Im not saying were not bringing Jay back for four weeks. Thats what the doctors have said and well work off that timeline. If it happens quicker, that would be great." Trestman did not declare Cutler out for Mondays game at Green Bay but said its "highly unlikely" he would play. "You never want to say never," he said. "I would say its highly unlikely that Jay will be playing on Monday night, but I would not want to make it 100 per cent at this point in time." Assuming Cutler sits out as expected, Josh McCown will start. The Bears host Detroit the following week, and while receiver Brandon Marshall told Chicagos WMVP-AM 1000 on Monday the quarterback would be ready for that game, Cutler grinned when asked about that. "Hes optimistic. And so am I," Cutler said. "So well see how it goes." Cutler got knocked out of the Redskins game early in the second quarter on a sack by Chris Baker. He stayed down for several minutes and limped off the field. Besides Cutler, Chicago also lost Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs to a small fracture in his left shoulder in that game. He was expected to miss about six weeks, leaving the struggling Bears (4-3) without their most important players on offence and defence. Theyve dropped three of four, and after an off week, the schedule isnt exactly taking an easy turn. Stopping Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, not to mention Ndamukong Suh and the Lions, would have been tough enough at full strength. Now, the Bears are trying to keep pace in the NFC North with key pieces missing. Cutler was enjoying his best season in recent memory in his first year under Trestman, but things took a bad turn for him at Washington. He struggled in that game, and when he went down, there was no hiding his agony. "This has been the most significant pain-wise that Ive had," Cutler said. He said hes seeing improvement but wouldnt get into specifics about his recovery or his rehab. Assuming he doesnt make an early comeback, this is the second time in three years that Cutler is missing a significant portion of the season because of an injury. In 2011, a broken thumb kept him out of the final six games and sent the Bears into a freefall that cost general manager Jerry Angelo his job. The groin injury is causing him to miss time in a contract year and could have heavy financial ramifications after the season. "Doesnt matter what year it is, you never want to get injured," Cutler said. For now, he said hes pushing himself as much as he can. He played some catch during Tuesdays practice but did not move around, Trestman said. The Bears believe theyre in a better position to get by without Cutler than they were in 2011 because of the weapons they now have. Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall wasnt around back then, nor were Alshon Jeffery or tight end Martellus Bennett, and running back Matt Forte missed the final four games that year with a knee injury. McCown will have help around him. As for Cutler? "Whenever they give me the green light, were going to go in there rocking and we cant look back," he said. "So whenever that happens, youll see me out there." Ben Gedeon Jersey . "I dont know where we would be without him," McClendon said. "Hes done a tremendous job for us and (Wednesday) was no different." Logan Morrison drove in two runs in Seattles big sixth inning, Young pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners beat the Houston Astros 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep. Stefon Diggs Jersey . On Thursday, a judge said Varlamov could be released if he posted $5,000 bond and be allowed to travel with the team but he was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, among other restrictions. http://www.vikingsauthenticshop.com/Vikings-Trae-Waynes-Draft-Jersey/ .

Robbie Grossman drove in a run and scored during a three-run fifth for the major league-worst Astros (40-81), who have won three of four for the first time since June 18. Peacock (2-4) earned his first victory since April 10 after two hard-luck losses following his return to the rotation. The rookie yielded four hits and two unearned runs, striking out five. Hank Conger drove in a run during his first multihit game since June 30 for the foundering Angels. Theyve lost 15 of 21, including five straight at home. Grant Green got the first run-scoring hit of his major league career for the Angels, but Jerome Williams (5-9) extended his skid to 11 straight winless starts to open this matchup of the AL Wests bottom two teams. After a sacrifice fly in the fifth and a run-scoring single in the seventh, Carter connected for his 23rd homer in the ninth. Matt Dominguez followed with a solo shot off Joe Blanton for the Astros fourth back-to-back homers this season. That was more than enough to protect a win for Peacock, who has allowed four earned runs in 19 1-3 innings over three starts since returning from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Houston has won six of eight at the Big A during its first season in the AL West, even sweeping a four-game series in early June. The Astros hadnt won another road series until earlier this week, when they took two of three in Oakland.

Jose Altuve and Castro then drew walks during difficult plate appearances, with Castro forcing in a run on Williams 99th pitch. After Carter singled home Brett Wallace in the seventh for Houston, the Angels chased Peacock with three straight hits, including Greens RBI single with one out. Green, the Anaheim native acquired in a recent trade with Oakland, has been batting over .400 with the Angels, but hadnt driven in a run. Reliever Josh Zeid escaped a seventh-inning jam by getting Peter Bourjos to ground into a double play, and Kevin Chapman got a popup from Josh Hamilton with a runner on to end the eighth. Hamilton went 0 for 4, returning to his miserable home form after the $125 million slugger went 11 for 29 over the past week. Angels right-hander Kevin Jepsen left the mound in the seventh after Dominguezs liner hit him in the pitching hand, leaving a bruise.
