Bears head coach Mark Trestman says Jay Culter will start next week against the Packers.
If the game was close, Cutler would have never been removed following a pick-six in the fourth quarter. The Bears season will be on the line in Week 17 and their fate will be in the hands of Cutler, not Josh McCown.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Joakim Soria will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Soria was acquired last season by the Tigers as an insurance policy for the struggling Joe Nathan but he found himself getting injured just six games after being acquired which forced him to miss more than a month. In 13 games with the Tigers last season Soria went 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA after posting a 2.70 ERA with the Rangers prior to the trade. The Tigers expect Nathan to be their closer heading into the season which will mean Soria will once again be in a set up role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
