Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. Brian Hoyer draws the start vs. the league’s 32nd-ranked QB defense.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is doubtful for this weekend's game against the Lions. He practiced on Wednesday but was held out on Thursday and Friday. Brian Hoyer draws the start vs. Detroit's 32nd-ranked QB defense. He's a spot-start and DFS option.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) did not practice on Thursday. His limited workout on Wednesday must not have gone well. Look for QB Brian Hoyer to start against the Lions this weekend. We'd consider that good news for the rest of Chicago's skill-position guys.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to play this weekend, although we'd still consider him no better than 50-50. Whoever starts at QB for Chicago -- Cutler or Brian Hoyer -- will have spot-start appeal against Detroit's 31st-ranked QB defense.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Cowboys. Brian Hoyer gets the start but is just a low-end QB2 in fantasy football.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is listed as doubtful and won’t play against the Cowboys on Sunday night. QB Brian Hoyer will draw the start. He’s not a fantasy option but should at least be able to keep WR Alshon Jeffery’s fantasy value afloat.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is expected to be out 2-3 weeks. "Timeline depends on how he heals over the next 3 days," Rapoport adds. Chicago will turn to QB Brian Hoyer while Cutler is out. He completed 58% of his passes with 31 TDs vs. 20 INTs for the Browns and Texans over the past 2 seasons and might not be a significant downgrade from Cutler. Hoyer won't be more than a low-end QB2, but he's good enough to keep WR Alshon Jeffery in must-start territory.

Bears QB Jay Cutler played through ligament damage in his right (throwing) thumb during Monday night's loss to the Eagles, according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Adam Jahns. Cutler reportedly suffered the injury in Week 1. A source tells Jahns that the injury usually sidelines guys for 3-4 weeks. Cutler left last night's game late in the 3rd quarter after tossing a bad INT. He was wearing a cast on the hand afterward and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. “I’m concerned,” Cutler said after the game. “As a quarterback, you kind of need your right thumb. So I think it was [2011] when I had surgery on this thumb. So we’ll see what it is.” We'll look for an update on Cutler later today. QB Brian Hoyer would start vs. Dallas on Sunday night if Cutler can't.

Bears QB Jay Cutler exited in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game with a right (throwing) hand injury. He struggled before getting hurt, completing 12 of 17 passes for 157 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. He also lost a fumble. We'll look for an update on Cutler's status after the game. He hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2009. QB Brian Hoyer is Chicago's backup.

12:12pm EDT 5/1/16

The Bears have signed QB Brian Hoyer to a 1-year, $2 million deal.  Hoyer completed 57.7% of his passes with 31 TDs and 20 INTs in 25 appearances for the Browns and Texans over the last 2 years.  He's a backup-caliber talent, which is what he'll be in Chicago.  It's worth noting, though, that QB Jay Cutler has missed at least 1 game in 6 straight seasons.

As expected, the Texans have released QB Brian Hoyer, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Houston obviously signed QB Brock Osweiler to take over the starting job and likely spent the past month trying to see if there was any trade market for Hoyer. The former Texan started 9 games last season and put up better fantasy football numbers than anyone expected. That followed a 13-start season in Cleveland. But Hoyer is a backup-level QB who will probably return to a backup role in 2016. Of course, the fact that he is a quarterback should mean that someone will sign him before the end of summer.

The Texans have agreed to a contract with QB Brock Osweiler, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.  A 2nd-round pick back in 2012, Osweiler spent his first 3 seasons under QB Peyton Manning.  He played 6 full games this past year, completing 62% of his passes, averaging 6.9 yards per attempt and tossing 8 TDs vs. 3 INTs.  Osweiler remains mostly an enigma, but there's a good chance that he proves to be an upgrade over QB Brian Hoyer.  We like this news for WR DeAndre Hopkins' outlook.  The Broncos, meanwhile, are left with only QB Trevor Siemian on their roster.  They reportedly have some interest in 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) has been cleared and will start Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.  Hoyer torched Jacksonville for 293 yards and 3 scores earlier this year.  He's on the streaming and DFS radar for Week 17.

Texans QB Brandon Weeden is expected to start this weekend's game against the Titans, according to insider Tania Ganguli.  CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms that QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is not expected to be cleared by Sunday morning.  Weeden joined Houston a little more than a month ago after getting cut by the Cowboys.  We know what Weeden is at this point -- and it's not a fantasy starter.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans. He was limited in practice all week but still hasn’t received full clearance. We’ll find out Hoyer’s status by noon ET on Sunday. QB Brandon Weeden will start if Hoyer can’t.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) will return to practice on Wednesday, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson.  Hoyer still hasn't received full clearance but is obviously making progress.  He's sustained 2 concussions this season and 5 in his career.  If he can't go against the Titans on Sunday, QB Brandon Weeden will draw the start.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien on Wednesday ruled QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) out for this weekend's game against the Colts.  "I think he is feeling better," O'Brien added.  But being ruled out so early in the week doesn't bode well for Hoyer's Week 16 status.  QB T.J. Yates will start for however long Hoyer is out.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer suffered a concussion and a neck strain in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.  The concussion is the bigger concern, especially because it's his 2nd of the season.  Hoyer looks extremely iffy to be ready for this week's game against the Colts.  If he can't go, Houston will turn to QB T.J. Yates.

10:19pm EST 12/13/15

Texans QB Brian Hoyer left Sunday night's game against the Patriots to be tested for a concussion. If confirmed, it would be Hoyer's 2nd concussion of the year. The 1st cost him the Week 11 win over the Jets. We'll update the situation as we learn more. A healthy Hoyer might have some streamer-level appeal against the Colts in Week 15.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) will be back under center for Week 12.  That presumably means he's passed through the concussion protocol.  Hoyer will return for a dream matchup against the Saints' league-worst pass defense.  It puts him squarely on the spot-start radar.
