Injured Cutler exits, McCown takes over for Bears

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is back from a groin injury, but another injury has forced him to leave today’s NFC North showdown with the Lions.

Cutler appeared to be bothered at times by both his groin and an injury to his left hand, but the early indications are that it was an ankle injury that finally forced Cutler to the sideline.

Backup Josh McCown, who played well last week in a win over the Packers, took over with the Lions leading the Bears 21-13.

At the two-minute warning, the Bears need McCown to work some magic, or fall behind the Lions in the division.
