A concussion is keeping another pro football player off the field this weekend. 

After getting sacked nine times in last week’s game against the New York Giants, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler won’t be playing in his team’s game against the Panthers Sunday.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Cutler was checked out by the Bear’s team physician, as well as independent doctors, after doing a light practice Wednesday. They decided to bench him for tomorrow’s game. 

Todd Collins will be taking over Cutler’s quarterback duties against the Panthers.
