Clausen suffered a concussion Sunday against the Lions and won't play in the Bears' season finale this weekend against the Vikings, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

With Clausen (who the Bears' official site indicates was diagnosed with a concussion on Sunday night after experiencing delayed symptoms) unavailable this week, Rapoport relays that the Bears plan to turn to previous starter Jay Cutler in Week 17, with rookie David Fales slated to serve as his backup.
Clausen completed 23-of-39 passes for 181 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Lions, adding nine rushing yards on three carries.

Clausen will start for the Bears in place of Jay Cutler for their Week 16 matchup against the Lions, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Clausen has attempted just nine passes since the 2010 season, when he appeared in 13 games for Carolina, and threw three touchdowns compared to nine interceptions. He doesn't have much of an NFL track record that suggests he'll be successful in the league, but coach Marc Trestman has confidence in him over the incumbent Jay Cutler, who leads the league with 18 interceptions this season. Clausen will face a tough matchup in his first start of 2014, as the Lions rank second in the league in total defense.
Clausen completed 1-of-3 passes for 11 yards in Sunday's 55-14 loss to the Packers.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Though he hasn't taken an NFL snap since his rookie season of 2010, Clausen impressed the coaching staff during the Bears' June minicamp and was signed to a contract. He sustained his success in training camp, ultimately beating out Jordan Palmer for the top backup job behind Jay Cutler. Considering the occasional fragility Cutler has shown during his tenure in Chicago, it wouldn't be a surprise if Clausen saw some extended game action at some point this season.

2013

Competed with Derek Anderson to be Cam Newton's backup this season before being cut.

2012

Has no shot at a starting job and will compete with Derek Anderson for the backup role behind Cam Newton.

2011

Clausen was quite bad as a rookie, and, frankly, didnít give any reason for optimism. He has a good shot of heading into autumn as Carolinaís default starter, however, because Cam Newton figures to be very raw coming out of Auburn. Still, itís tough to see the Panthers enduring 16 more games of what Clausen had to offer a year ago, so he either needs to improve a great deal or get ready to see the bench a couple months into the year. The Panthers also brought in veteran Derek Anderson, but it would be tough to see a situation where Clausen struggles and the team goes to Anderson instead of Newton.

2010

Carolina's first pick in the 2010 draft, Clausen is a potential steal as the Panthers were able to land him in the second round. He is widely considered to be one of the most NFL-ready quarterbacks, having studied under Charlie Weis' offense at Notre Dame, which is similar to the offense used in Carolina. However, he has been criticized for a lack of leadership and for not having a strong work ethic in the film room. Criticism aside, he is definitely considered the QB of the future for Carolina, and could be handed the starting job this season if Matt Moore struggles early.
