Jay Cutler went into the 2013 regular season licking his chops. The Chicago Bears‘ quarterback was able to read the writing on the wall as colleagues were getting paid left and right, and Cutler was the beneficiary heading into a contract year. However, Cutler suffered a major setback in Week 7, which means the Tony Romo-like payday that No. 6 was expecting might have gone out of the window.
Cutler was diagnosed with a torn muscle in his groin after he left the field in the second quarter of the Bears’ loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
After numerous reports that this injury was “going to be bad” Bears head coach Marc Trestman finally took to the podium and informed NFL fans that Cutler would miss at least the next four weeks of action. Cutler doesn’t have a contract with Chicago beyond 2013, so this injury is surely going to impact what Bears general manger Phil Emery decides to at the quarterback position from here on out.
