The Chicago Bears watched starting quarterback Jay Cutler go down with a lower body injury in the first-half of their Sunday loss to the Washington Redskins, but there was no immediate word on the extent of the injury.
It was reported that Cutler’s injury was to his groin and not his hip, and now we are beginning to hear more updates.
Cutler is set to undergo further testing on the injury today, but reports indicate the team is fearing for the worst.
From the Chicago Tribune:
The Bears are expecting full MRI results on quarterback Jay Cutler’s groin injury by Monday afternoon and privately are bracing themselves for bad news.
Without Cutler under center, the Bears would be with Josh McCown as their starting quarterback and Jordan Palmer as the primary back up. If that isn’t enough to scare Bears fans about what the future of the season may hold, then I don’t know what will.
If Cutler is forced to miss significant time, the Bears early start will have been for nothing and the team could begin to plummet down the rankings.
