Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery listed as questionable for Sunday

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and receiver Alshon Jeffery are questionable for Sunday's contest against the Raiders, plus the rest of the Week 4 injury report.

The Chicago Bears list quarterback Jay Cutler and WR Alshon Jeffery as questionable on the official Week 4 injury report. It will be a game-time decision for both. 

"[We] just [need to see] whether [Cutler] is healthy or not," head coach John Fox said today. "When they’re cleared to play medically, we’ll have them out there."

Left tackle Jermon Bushrod has not been cleared to play due to his concussion and will not suit up against the Raiders. Charles Leno will make his first career start at left tackle on Sunday. 

"Skillset-wise, I think he’s probably more adaptable to the left side than the right side," Fox said of Leno. "I think it’s a huge opportunity for him, and we’re all excited and anxious to see how he performs."

Also questionable for the Bears are DL Ego Ferguson (knee), DL Will Sutton (elbow), DL Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle), P Patrick O'Donnell (knee), CB Alan Ball (groin). 

Fox said the groin injury for Ball happened during last week's contest. 

"He felt some soreness after the game last week," Fox said.

If Ball can't play, Terrance Mitchell may get the start at cornerback. 

The Bears do not have a backup punter on the roster. If they don't sign one today or tomorrow, then O'Donnell will likely play.
