“I got to be smart about it,” Cutler said. “It could be, I’m done for the season.”
Cutler’s not saying he’s done but it’s certainly not what you were hoping to hear if you’re a Bears fan. Cutler’s broken thumb required surgery that placed two pins and three screws to be inserted into his hand for support.
“Just getting some movement back in it,” Cutler said of his rehabilitation.
Cutler was asked about his timeline for returning to game action.
“I don’t know. We’ll just have to see, week-by-week,” Cutler said. “I don’t want to put a number on it, because I just don’t know.”
Chicago may be forced to lean on backup QB Caleb Hanie for the foreseeable future and possibility to land them a spot in the playoffs.
