Thumbs In Haiku: Hanie 2, Cutler 1

Another Bears win
But time for a new QB
Thumbs up for Hanie?


The Bears defeated the Chargers  31-20  on Sunday, but suffered a serious loss:


Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks with a broken thumb on his right throwing hand suffered late in Sunday's 31-20 victory over San Diego, multiple sources told the Tribune.

According to a source, surgery could be an option for the quarterback, but there is no immediate plan to put Cutler on injured reserve. Essentially, he could return for the playoffs, with six weeks remaining in the regular season.

Caleb Hanie will assume the quarterback duties as Cutler recovers.
