Looks like Ndamukong Suh will get his wish.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who missed a game and a half with a groin injury, is expected to return Sunday to face the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field.
“I love playing against Cutler, he’s a tough guy,’’ Suh said before the announcement. “No discredit to (Josh) McCown, but I want the best shot. Whichever quarterback is healthier, and the healthiest to go and is going to give them their best opportunity, that’s who I want to go against. I want to beat the best no matter what every single week.”
In the first match-up in Week Four, the Lions defensive tackle sacked Cutler twice (see photo) and had a pair of quarterback hurries. The Lions won 40-32. (Stephen Tulloch also had a sack and Louis Delmas intercepted him twice and Glover Quin once.)
The Lions have insisted it doesn’t make a big difference in their preparation whether they face Cutler or McCown who led the Bears to a win at Green Bay on Monday night.
