Sprained Thumb Could Leave Struggling Bears Without Cutler

ANDREW SELIGMAN, AP Sports Writer

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The struggling Chicago Bears might have to get by without quarterback Jay Cutler.

Coach John Fox said Cutler has a sprained right thumb that does not appear to require surgery and would not rule him out for this weekend’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

If he is not ready, Brian Hoyer will start.

Cutler topped a long list of players injured in Monday’s loss to Philadelphia.

The defense was hit hard, with linebacker Danny Trevathan scheduled for surgery Wednesday morning on a sprained thumb. The Bears were awaiting the results of an MRI on linebacker Lamarr Houston, who suffered a left knee injury that Fox said “appears to be significant.” Nose tackle Eddie Goldman (sprained ankle) left the field on a cart.
