The Seahawks next game just got a little easier. The Bears will officially (per Adam Schefter) be without the services of starting quarterback Jay Cutler, who suffered a sprained hamstring in the Bears' loss to the Cardinals Sunday.

Bears head coach John Fox called the injury "not really severe" and told reporters that they'd have a better update on Wednesday, but it looks like it's already known to serious enough to conclude that he won't be able to go this week. Cutler injured his hammy trying to make a tackle after he'd thrown an interception to Tony Jefferson. He left the game after that and was replaced by Jimmy Clausen, who finished the game 14-of-23 (5.7 YPA) for 121 yards and a pick.

Clausen has started ten games in his career and has a rating of 60.0 in 13 total games. He's thrown 5 touchdowns to 11 picks and completed just 53% of his passes.
