LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears coach John Fox said quarterback Jay Cutler did not suffer a season-ending right shoulder injury in last week’s 22-16 loss to the New York Giants.

Cutler missed practice Wednesday, but Fox refused to rule him out for Sunday’s game against Tennessee.

Cutler was sacked four times at MetLife Stadium, but finished the game. A source said Cutler underwent tests Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

Fox would not say if Cutler’s right shoulder injury will eventually require surgery.

In the likely event Cutler is unable to play in Week 12, fourth-year quarterback Matt Barkley is preparing to start against the Titans. Barley has appeared in one game for the Bears this season, completing 6-of-15 pass attempts for 81 yards and two interceptions in a loss to Green Bay last month.

The Bears announced Wednesday that they signed quarterback David Fales off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. Fales — selected by the Bears in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft — spent over two seasons with the organization before Chicago released him after the preseason.
