Jay Cutler Received Painkiller Shot During Halftime Of NFC Title Game

Because we cannot possibly let Jay Cutler’s NFC Title Game Saga go until after the team that defeated his has played in the Super Bowl, news broke today that Cutler received a painkiller shot during halftime of the NFC Championship in an attempt to play in the second half.

According to the Sun-Times, the Bears were ready to sit Cutler. However the QB wanted to give it a go and received the shot.

He returned to the field a few minutes after the rest of his teammates, and he led the offense on the opening series of the second half. But on a handoff to Forte, Cutler’s knee buckled, and he left the game for good after that three-and-out series.

Does that change your perception on Jay Cutler? Or had you already forgotten about this a week ago?

On Monday, it was revealed that Cutler suffered a Grade II MCL tear, which could keep him sidelined for three to six weeks. Roughly the amount of time left that we’ll still be hearing news about this.
