Bears bench QB Jay Cutler for Clausen

Posted: Updated:
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman says quarterback Jay Cutler is being benched in favor of Jimmy Clausen.

Trestman announced the move on Thursday. He says Cutler will be active and serve as the backup for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field.

Cutler leads the league in interceptions (18) and turnovers (24). He signed a massive seven-year deal with the Bears after last season.
