LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears coach John Fox says quarterback Jay Cutler has a strained hamstring.

Fox says tests showed no major structural damage. He also says "anytime it's not really severe, it's good news."

Fox spoke Monday, a day after Cutler was injured trying to make a tackle after getting intercepted in Sunday's 48-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

His status for this week's game against defending NFC champion Seattle is in question. Fox would not say if Cutler had an MRI or if he expected him to practice Wednesday.

He also would not say if Jimmy Clausen would start for the Bears (0-2) against the Seahawks (0-2).
