LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will miss Monday's game at San Francisco because of a concussion.

The Bears announced the decision Friday, meaning Jason Campbell is the likely starter against the 49ers.

Star receiver Brandon Marshall said Cutler is getting better, but he also said there's a bigger picture that goes beyond this week's game.

"Our life, our health, is more important than football," Marshall said. "I think we'll get Jay back sooner than later."

For now, they believe they have enough to get by. They brought in Campbell in the offseason just for a situation like this, and he found out Thursday that he'll be starting.
