Jay Cutler reportedly suffered a shoulder injury that could end his season
Jay Cutler has suffered a shoulder injury that could potentially end his season, according to a report from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Cutler finished the Bears' 22-16 loss to the Giants on Sunday, and threw an interception on the game's final play.
The extent of the injury is not known at this time. Cutler missed five games earlier this season with a thumb injury, and Brian Hoyer may have kept the starting job permanently had he not suffered a broken arm in a Week 7 loss to the Packers.
If Cutler is forced to miss time, Matt Barkley would be the starting quarterback for the Bears next Sunday when they host the Titans.
The #Bears will know tomorrow if Jay Cutler’s injury is season-ending. Either way, it’s not good and he’ll miss games. Frustrating season.
