Bears QB Jay Cutler Breaks Thumb on Throwing Hand! Out 6-8 Weeks

I’ve often said that starting quarterback Jay Cutler would get seriously hurt in a Chicago Bears game this season, but I didn’t think it would happen on a night in which he actually had fairly decent pass protection. As I’ve regularly pointed out, the Bears’ extremely terrible offensive line and Mike Martz‘s “interesting” schemes were bound to get him hurt at some point.

And tonight, although the protection was much better as the Bears beat the San Diego Chargers 31-20 to improve to 7-3, QB Jay Cutler broke the thumb in his throwing hand. He may need surgery to repair the injury.

(UPDATE: Multiple outlets report Cutler will be out 6-8 weeks!)
