“He said he had the blurred vision after the quarterback sneak,” Harbaugh said. “There’s no telling. Did that earlier hit contribute? I don’t know. I don’t know Alex knows for sure, either.”

Added Harbaugh: “You don’t want him out there with blurred vision. … He came up from the sneak and he had blurred vision and he felt that it would go away. He came over to the sideline and sat down and felt it would go away and it didn’t.”

Bears coach Lovie Smith said Cutler showed no symptoms of a concussion immediately after a helmet-to-helmet hit from Houston’s Tim Dobbins in the second quarter. Cutler finished the half, then was held out after halftime. While the play with Dobbins’ hit was being reviewed by the officials, Smith said: “Our trainers talked to him, evaluated him; he was fine from there. Players in the huddle didn’t see anything wrong with him at the time.”

Vick, meanwhile, was diagnosed with a “pretty significant” concussion, coach Andy Reid said. Reid wouldn’t rule Vick out for next Sunday’s game at the Washington Redskins; rookie Nick Foles would play if Vick doesn’t.

“You’ve got to get ready for both. We’re not too sure what the situation is, so we’ll wait and see there,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. “With the concussion that he had, I don’t think you’re really sure.”
