CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is expected to have surgery on his broken right thumb and is likely to miss the rest of the regular season, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Cutler passed for 286 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-20 victory over the Chargers, the Bears' fifth straight. It's unclear when he suffered the injury.

Cutler did not talk about an injury during his postgame comments to reporters.

Yeah.....he still threw the ball 5 or 6 times after he injured it. But didnt say anything even during his post game interview? Now it's a season ending injury? Best man up!

That stinks for the Bears. Oh well...I guess I'll have to watch Brady.

What can I do but pray for the man and his thumb? I've been a loyal supporter unlike a supposed Bears fan who shall remain nameless.  >:(

:rofl: That's true, you've been a better fan than many.

Really if he can put off the surgery until after the season then the Bears have a good shot to make some noise, their schedule is very easy down the stretch. Even if they lose to Green Bay it'll be the third meeting once in the playoffs that will be the one that makes the difference.

edit: the news doesn't make it sound like putting off the surgery is an option, but he could come back for the playoffs

The Chicago Tribune reports that Cutler's initial timetable for return is 6-8 weeks. Per the Sun Times' Sean Jensen, "there is a fear" that Cutler may not play again this year, but "there will be more tests." ESPN Chicago's Mike Wright also reports that Cutler will require surgery, so this is clearly a more significant thumb break than Ben Roethlisberger's. Caleb Hanie would take over as the Bears' starter, much to Mike Martz's chagrin. We can wait for more confirmation this week, but all signs point to Cutler's regular season being over. Chicago's chances at a playoff run are going to take a big hit.

The backup is Caleb Hanie...I don't know if he's any good. MMC spoke very highly of him but that may have been his anti Cutler bias!  >:( :o :D

Yeah, most likely.  ::) Maybe they can get Cutler back into the game sooner than has been forecasted.,
