Bears QB Jay Cutler believed to have torn labrum, to miss rest of year

Jay Cutler is believed to have a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder and is expected to miss the rest of the season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported.

Related players: Matt Barkley, Cameron Meredith, Eddie Royal, Jordan Howard, David Fales

Fantasy Impact:

Cutler is seeking a second opinion, which he's hoping produces a different prognosis, the story said. Cutler injured his thumb earlier in the season, missing five games. With Brian Hoyer having a broken arm, Matt Barkley is up next on the depth chart. The Bears have already signed David Fales off the Ravens practice squad, a report said. It's a downgrade for any Bear weapons who remain healthy - mostly Eddie Royal and Cameron Meredith. The team is without suspended Alshon Jeffery and lost TE Zach Miller to a broken foot in Week 11. The team could look to run the ball more with Jordan Howard, but Barkley doesn't present much of a threat to hurt a defense in the passing game so opponents may be able to stuff the run going forward. It's not shaping up to be a pretty situation for the Bears offense for the remainder of the season.

Jay Cutler is undergoing tests for a shoulder injury sustained in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the injury. The starting quarterback is expected to miss time, per Rapoport. The team will know more Tuesday, with one source acknowledging the possibility that the injury could be serious in nature.

The Chicago Tribune first reported the development.

Fantasy Impact:

As NFL Network's Mike Garafolo pointed out, Fox told reporters there were severals reasons Cutler couldn't take advantage of the Giants' defense stacking the box. A shoulder issue would certainly qualify as one of those factors. This is Cutler's second injury of the season. He missed five games in September and October with a sprained thumb. The Bears have already lost quarterbacks Connor Shaw (broken leg) and Brian Hoyer (broken arm) to major injuries, leaving journeyman third-stringer Matt Barkley as the lone in-house replacement for Cutler.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) cleared to play

NFL.com - [Full Article]

In the type of coincidence native to the NFL, the Bears received clearance on quarterback Jay Cutler on Monday -- soon after we discovered that quarterback Brian Hoyer will be out for a significant amount of time with a broken arm.

Head coach John Fox made the announcement Monday, adding that Hoyer's surgery was successful and that he will likely head to injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said this could be an audition for Cutler as the Bears may try to get out of his contract at the end of the season. With the weapons around him in the passing game, he certainly has fantasy potential, although before the injury it was a bit of a struggle for him.
