Jay Cutler will start at quarterback for the Chicago Bears against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, reports ESPN

Cutler came through a full-speed workout on Wednesday which was enough for Bears coach Marc Trestman to name him in this weekend's team. 

Cutler will replace Josh McCown in the QB position after missing the last four matches because of an ankle sprain which he picked up on November 10 against the Detroit Lions. 

Trestman believes Cutler's preparation for the game will set him up well for this weekend's clash. 

On the fitness of Cutler, Trestman said: "We have a very close quarterback room.

"Everybody knows our situation. There was never a doubt that this the direction we were gonna go. We said that from the beginning. Josh did a tremendous job filling in as the backup. Jay's healthy and ready to go and will play on Sunday."

The Chicago bears will be desperate to make it back-to-back wins on Sunday after beating the Dallas Cowboys 45-28 in their last outing at the Soldier Field. 

Trestman will be hoping the return of Cutler will act as a boost to his side as they look for another crucial victory.  

The Cleveland Browns will certainly be hoping for victory on Sunday after having been beaten in their last four matches.
