The surging Bears may have hit a roadblock.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Bears fear Jay Cutler has a broken thumb. Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune quickly followed up that report to say Cutler indeed does have a broken thumb on his throwing hand.
It’s unclear when the injury occurred. Cutler was able to finish Sunday’s win against the Chargers.
UPDATE: Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports there is fear the injury could end Cutler’s season. Oh my.
UPDATE II: Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com hears Cutler may need surgery, which could end his regular season.
UPDATE III: Cutler broke his thumb on his fourth quarter interception when he was blocked into the ground, according to the Chicago Tribune. He threw two passes after that, completing both of them.
UPDATE IV: He’s out 6-8 weeks. It’s Caleb Hanie time.
