After being out for a couple games with a groin injury, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is set for return against the Detroit Lions this Sunday in a critical NFC North showdown.

Both teams, along with the Green Bay Packers, are tied at 5-3 with the Bears having the division lead.

Cutler has been cleared to play and backup Josh McCown will sit in Cutler's first game since being injured against the Washington Redskins in Week 7.
