On a night when there wasn’t much positive to report, Bears coach Lovie Smith cast hope that starting quarterback Jay Cutler could return for the team’s next game against the Minnesota Vikings.

“He was feeling better. He got better as time went along,” Smith said of Cutler. “We left him at home, didn’t have him fly out.

“He was feeling a lot better by the end of the week so it’s looking good.”

The Bears thought they had a more than capable backup in veteran Jason Campbell, but he struggled in a 32-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Campbell completed 14 of 22 passes for 107 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

His passer rating was 52.7, and he also fumbled twice, including one in the end zone that resulted in a safety.

Cutler was ruled out for the game against the 49ers Friday after suffering a concussion late in the second quarter of the 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans at Soldier Field.

The Bears return to Soldier Field, where they host the 6-4 Vikings on Sunday.

Cutler is scheduled to make his appearance on his weekly radio show with ESPN 1000 Tuesday.
