Jay Cutler Leaves Game With Knee Injury

CHICAGO (AP) — Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left Sunday’s NFC championship game in the third quarter because of a knee injury, and Chicago tried two more QBs in hopes of rallying against Green Bay.

Cutler was replaced by Todd Collins with Chicago trailing 14-0.

It was not clear which knee Cutler injured or when it happened.

Cutler was having a rough afternoon, going 6 for 14 with 80 yards and an interception. Collins, who had played sparingly this season, lasted two series before third-stringer Caleb Hanie replaced him late in the third period.

Hanie, who had thrown for a total of 66 yards in his two seasons in the NFL, directed a touchdown drive in the fourth quarter that pulled the Bears within 14-7.

    no one knew what knee or when it happened, was sitting on the bench with a dazed look on his face, right from the beginning it appeared to me he did not want to compete. He missed Hester wide open on the first series. Mark my words wont be on team next year.
