Bears quarterback Jay Cutler leaves game vs Eagles with right thumb injury
CHICAGO – A bad night for the Bears has been especially awful for their quarterback.
Jay Cutler didn’t even get to stick around to redeem himself.
After being sacked three times, losing a fumble and throwing an interception the Bears signal caller left Monday night’s game against the Eagles at Soldier Field after sustaining a right thumb injury according to head coach John Fox.
Cutler didn’t play the fourth quarter of the Bears’ 29-14 loss to the Eagles.
It was unclear when the injury was suffered but on a sack earlier in the third quarter by Destiny Vaeao Cutler did land directly on his throwing hand after the ball was stripped out. After that hit, Cutler only threw two more times on two series and his last pass of the night was intercepted by Nigel Bradham.
However Cutler said after the game that he sustained the injury earlier in the game but didn’t give a specific moment when it happened.
For the night Cutler finished 12-of-17 for 157 yards with no touchdowns and the one interception. He was also hit six times including three sacks by the Eagles’ defense.
