Redskins Edge Bears: Jay Cutler exits with groin injury


LANDOVER, Md. — Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left Sunday’s 45-41 loss to the Washington Redskins with a groin injury and did not return.

Cutler suffered the injury with 10:09 remaining in the second quarter after being slammed to the ground hard on a sack by Chris Baker.

As Baker swung Cutler to the ground, it appeared the quarterback’s lower body came down on top of the defensive end’s knee. Cutler lay on the grass writhing in pain, and the Bears’ medical staff quickly came onto the field to examine the quarterback.

Cutler eventually limped off the field under his own power, and the team’s medical staff immediately walked him into the locker room for X-rays.

Cutler was replaced by Josh McCown, who completed 14-of-20 pass attempts for 204 yards and a touchdown.

With Cutler injured, the Bears will re-sign quarterback Jordan Palmer on Monday, a league source told ESPN.

Prior to the injury, Cutler had completed 3-of-8 passes for 28 yards, including an interception returned 29 yards for a touchdown by Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo.
