Jay Cutler's injury in the NFC Championship Game could be worse than initially expected.
NBC Sports' Evan Silva tweets that the Bears believe Cutler's injury could be a torn MCL, and they'll be running further tests on him on Monday.
Jay Cutler will have an MRI on his knee tomorrow. It's believed that he tore his MCL, but Bears will know for sure after tests.
As to the "torn MCL" excuse for Cutler, Philip Rivers finished a game and played another with a torn ACL.
Florio's referring to the postseason Rivers had in 2007, when he tore his ACL in a win over the Colts and played rather terribly against the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.
Rivers threw two interceptions and couldn't get the Chargers a touchdown in the latter game, and they lost, 21-12. But, hey, he's tough.
