QB JASON CAMPBELL WILL START WITH BEARS
Mon, 19 Nov 2012 10:13 AM EST

Jason Campbell will replace Jay Cutler as the Bears’ starting quarterback on Monday night against the 49ers, the team announced.

Cutler suffered a concussion last Sunday night on an illegal hit by Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins. He did not immediately display the symptoms of a concussion after Dobbins’ hit and stayed in the game for an additional 7 plays before being ruled out at halftime. Dobbins was charged $30,000.

“It feels good to get back in there and play, but you never want to have the opportunity to play because of someone’s injury. But we understand the position we play, those things happen sometimes,” declared Campbell, who said he was told he would start before practice. Baseball odds

Campbell has not started a game since October 16, when he suffered a broken collarbone with the Raiders.

“It’s a tough opponent we have Monday night,” Campbell said. “No one said it will be easy, but we have to go there and fight together and we’ve got to play as a unit. You have to let it hang out in a game like this. We have all the respect in the world for the San Francisco 49ers and what they do, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. It’s a big part of the reason why were in the NFC Championship Game a year back, utmost respect. We understand it’s going to take a total team effort.”

Campbell is confident, but he’s also realistic.

“Everyone knows if you haven’t played in a while, you are not going to be like a Peyton Manning,” he said. “You have to do what you do and do it to the best of your ability. Jay is good at what he does and I’m good for different reasons for things that I do. That’s the way that I have to play the game.”

Cutler’s chemistry with receiver Brandon Marshall, returning to their days with the Broncos, has been one reason the Bears are 7-2. But Marshall is assured the Bears can win with Campbell, who was brought in after the team collapsed last year after a Cutler injury. The Chicago Bears went from 7-3 with Cutler to finish 1-5 and out of the playoffs as Caleb Hanie struggled in a backup role.

“If you look at what’s happened to the Bears last year, that is the reason why he’s here,” Marshall related. “He has a big arm, and he has got a great feel for the game.

“Jason’s played a lot of football, he’s an established veteran, and he’s the next guy up and more than capable. We’re fortunate enough to have a starting quarterback as our backup. I’m excited and really at ease to have him in our huddle, as he makes it so much easier.”

Campbell relieved Cutler in the 2nd half against the Houston Texans and finished 11 of 19 passes for 94 yards and had one rushing attempt for 5 yards. Campbell started 70 games for the Washington Redskins and Raiders from 2006-11 but confirmed a 1-year contract with the Chicago Bears in the offseason to serve as Cutler’s primary backup.
