Dolphins QB Jay Cutler Could Miss 2-3 Weeks With Cracked Ribs


Adam Schefter reports that Dolphins QB Jay Cutler is believed to have suffered two cracked ribs during Sunday’s game against the Jets and could be sidelined two to three weeks as a result.

  • Ian Rapoport confirms that Culter is likely to miss Week 8’s Thursday night game against the Ravens, but there’s a chance he could return the following week.

Cutler is getting X-rays taken on his ribs to determine the severity of the injury, but it sounds like Miami may have to turn to Matt Moore as their starter for the next few weeks.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler left Sunday’s game and was taken to the locker room after suffering a chest injury. Cutler is questionable to return to the game.

Veteran backup Matt Moore has replaced Cutler as the team’s quarterback during the third quarter of Sunday’s game.

Cutler, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2006. He spent three years in Denver before he was traded to the Bears in 2009. He was in the fourth year of his seven-year, $126.7 million contract that included $54 million guaranteed when the Bears cut him loose at the start of the 2017 league year.

After finding little interest as a free agent, Cutler decided to retire and accepted a job with FOX Sports as a broadcaster. However, the Dolphins convinced him to come out of retirement after Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury during training camp.

Entering today’s game, Cutler has appeared in five games and completed 857 yards while completing 61.6 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and four interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 32 quarterback out of 34 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding Cutler’s injury as the news is available.
