Jay Cutler Could Miss Extended Action with Ligament Damage to Thumb

September 20th, 2016

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left Monday's blowout loss against the Philadelphia Eagles with a thumb injury. Though, it's being reported that Cutler suffered said injury in Week 1 and attempted to play through it. Cutler exited the game after throwing an ill-timed third quarter interception. He's now reportedly set to miss at least three weeks with the injury, which is said to include ligament damage. With Cutler likely out over the short term, Brian Hoyer will get the nod under center in Chicago.
