Chicago Bears left tackle Jermon Bushrod says that the team have confidence in backup quarterback Josh McCown.

Jermon Bushrod has said that the Chicago Bears have "all the confidence in the world" in Josh McCown.

The backup quarterback will start after the team's bye week in place of Jay Cutler, who is expected to miss at least four weeks with a torn groin muscle.

The left tackle told the team's website: "All the confidence in the world. [McCown] came in and did his thing. He spread the ball around, he got us in good position, and we had a chance to win the game.

"You always want your guy out there. You know how competitive of a person [Cutler] is. You just feel sorry that he has to deal with it.

"But at the end of the day, Josh has been in the league for a long time. He's played a lot of games. He has a lot of experience. So we're excited about the opportunity."

McCown completed 204 passing yards during the team's 45-41 loss to the Washington Redskins last weekend.
