Report: Cutler Has Torn MCL

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler reportedly has a torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee, Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Cutler underwent an MRI on Monday after exiting Sunday's NFC Championship Game three plays into the second half of the Bears' 21-14 loss.

The degree of sprain--1st, 2nd, or 3rd, the most severe grade--has not been determined, though the extent of the injury figures to do little to change the perception around the NFL that Cutler could have, and should have, continued to play on the injured limb.

Lovie just called it a sprain. Not a tear.

Different degrees of a sprain and maybe it was a severe sprain but he probably won't need surgery. I think Brees earlier this season had a minor MCL sprain and didn't miss any time. Bear fans need someone to throw under the bus and a 'sprain' isn't going to stop them from doing that.
