Jay Cutler Breaks Thumb, Needs Surgery
Bears quarterback and Kristin Cavallari ex Jay Cutler broke his thumb in Sunday's game when he was trying to tackle Antoine Cason of the San Diego Chargers.
The injury is expected to keep Cutler benched for a while, but hopefully not for the duration of the season. "Is it a season-ending injury? No," said Bears Coach Lovie Smith, reports The Washington Post. "From what I've been told right now, we can expect him back at the end of the regular season," which is January 1.
Cutler is scheduled to undergo surgery for the injury on Tuesday. "It's devastating," said linebacker Brian Urlacher. "It's horrible, and I felt worse for him than I did for us. It stinks for us because he's having such a great year. He's our leader. He's the guy we turn to for pretty much everything."
Cutler called off his engagement with Cavallari last June.
