Jay Cutler wears cast over right thumb at press conference


QB Jay Cutler only has a sprained thumb, which is better for the Bears than it originally appeared, but he's still going to be out for 2-3 weeks. Wearing a cast afterward, he said he was concerned about his thumb, which will be further examined Tuesday.

"I'm listening in my helmet [when I'm not in there], so I'm getting a feel and a rhythm of the game that he's trying to call and obviously having gone through it mentally during the week, I have a pretty good feel for what his goal is for each play and that kind of thing", Hoyer said.

"It's hard for me to give timelines", Fox said on Tuesday. "We'll evaluate that tomorrow and split up practice as need be". If Jay's ready to do it, fine.

The Philadelphia Eagles are only two games into the Carson Wentz era, but the rookie has now led his team to a pair of wins after an easy 29-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Monday. So I think it was [2011] when I had surgery on this thumb.

Defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) also was hurt.

It was re-aggravated in last night's game, forcing him to leave late in the third quarter. Cutler reportedly suffered ligament damage to his thumb during the season-opening loss at Houston.

McCown's injury comes just a week after Robert Griffin III broke a bone in his left shoulder during the season opener at Philadelphia and will be sidelined for a minimum of eight games. Jay Cutler threw an interception and fumbled the ball once, while Jeremy Langford coughed up a fumble as well. Cutler said after the game that he had trouble gripping the ball and "couldn't get as much as I wanted" on the pass that floated to Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham.

Cutler headed to the locker room.

McPhee, who is now on the physically unable to perform list, was not available to the media afterward, so it's unknown whether he knew that Cutler's thumb was already bothering him at the time of the interception.

The Bears may already have set him back a bit. "You may get a few more reps here and there but that's the fact of being able to play at any time, being ready to play, so you prepare like you're going to play".

One of those plays where the more you watch the replay, the more you just don't believe he didn't catch it. He started 0-2 with theTexans last season and they went on to win the AFC South and play in the postseason.

"He's a passionate guy", Cutler said.

The Bears were 7-3 after beating the Chargers but lost their next five games and didn't make the playoffs.
