Video Breakdown of Jay Cutler’s Knee Injury via Sports Fans Network

There is still speculation about when exactly Jay Cutler was injured however this seems to be a pretty solid breakdown of his injury. Yourboyroy, youtuber and owner of will break it down for us.

Cutler is hit on the 1st play of the 2nd quarter by Ryan Pickett in the end zone. You can see Pickett’s lard ass falling directly on the left knee of Jay Cutler. This is where many believe that the injury occurred. If you watch the video you’ll be able to see Cutler grab at his leg. The passes thrown shortly after the injury lacked the Cutler-umph and were ridiculously off target.

His toughness doesn’t seem to be in question as he did tough through it for an entire quarter. The issue of him coming out of the game was, he was no longer effective because of the injury. On his last play of the game, and the season, he threw a block on Green Bay linebacker Erik Walden which put him on his back (with some help).

It’s going to be a long off-season, so stop by our CHICAGO BEARS MESSAGE BOARD.

    The ACL or MCL can be completely torn and one can still walk and such. But then one’s muscles are stabilizing the joint instead of doing what they normally do – in Cutler’s case that would have been directing pickts into the hands of T. Williams. When Haney came in is when I got nervous, scrub QBs usually do well the Packers.

    Yes, that was good research. However, I still think Jay punked out! If I were the quarterback in that situation, there’s no way I would have left that game unless they carried me out on a stretcher! By the way, did you see Jay today strolling around in Beverly Hills with his girlfriend shopping. Not even a limp! Jay Cutler is not welcome in Chicago!

    People can often function “normally” with such injuries. I’ve heard for an athletic person with well developed leg muscles they may continue to ski with a whole or partial mcl/acl tear. Their muscles are able keep the knee joint together when the demand on the muscles is limited. So yes, Jay can walk and stroll around, but using that leg to help him throw pick-6s would have been out of the question that day.

    Us laymen often use the word sprain very loosely, most often we should be using the word strain. Quit scapegoating Jay on the loss, the Bears were bested that day plain and simple.
