Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left Monday’s game against the Eagles at the end of the third quarter with an apparent right hand injury.

Cutler appeared to hurt his hand while fumbling earlier in the quarter when he fell to the ground and used his hand to brace for impact. He was having his hand looked at, but remained in for a pair of possessions. After throwing an interception, he was removed from the game and replaced by Brian Hoyer.

Before leaving, Cutler was 12 of 17 for 157 yards with an interception. The Bears trailed, 22–7.
