Cutler was injured trying to make a tackle after being intercepted by safety Tony Jefferson, who scored on the play for a 28-14 lead.
“It takes a while to run tests,” coach John Fox said when asked if it’s a season-ending injury for Cutler. “Our medical people will inform me, then I’ll inform you. At this point, he’s got a pulled hamstring.”
There was speculation there was more to the injury, but Fox only mentioned hamstring. Cutler went low on his tackle attempt after the INT and landed hard on his right side and shoulder. Cutler was also stiff-armed to the back of his helmet. Cutler immediately headed to the locker room after the play. Cutler was playing well before his injury and interception. He was 8-for-9 for 120 yards and a touchdown in the first half. Cutler also kept the ball three times on option plays for 24 yards.
