NFL Injury Report:
The Chicago Bears have announced that quarterback Jay Cutler
is day-to-day after suffering a neck injury late in yesterday’s 21-14 loss to
the Minnesota Vikings, reports Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times.
"Everything is stiff," Cutler said. "It
started stiffening up more and more as the game progressed, getting some spasms
on the left side. I just have to take it day by day."
Cutler sustained the injury in the fourth quarter of
yesterday’s contest when he was hit in the head by Vikings defensive lineman
Everson Griffen. As Cutler was being taken to the ground Griffen struck him “directly
in the head, bending his neck violently back,” according to Jahns.
While he was able to remain in the game for the rest of the
drive following the hit, he was replaced on the next series by backup quarterback
Because Cutler missed time due to a concussion earlier in
the season, there were initial concerns that he had once again suffered a head
injury. However the Bears have classified it as a neck, and it sounds like the
QB has a shot at playing next weekend.

In 2011, the Bears lost their starting quarterback, Jay Cutler, to a season ending injury. This season, the Bears have lost their starting middle linebacker, Brian Urlacher, possibly for the reminder of the regular season. Neither Jay Cutler or...

Perhaps this loss to the Minnesota Vikings is endemic of Lovie Smith's career as a Chicago Bears head coach. The defense played well, but gave up just enough to lose the game. The offense showed promise, but never put up enough points to win the football game.
In this loss the full ugliness of Smith's tenure was on display with the defense giving up over 100 yards...
