Jay Cutler's return: 'Questionable'

By Kevin Seifert

CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has left the NFC Championship Game, having been replaced by backup Todd Collins.

Cutler has a left knee injury, according to the Bears’ radio network. The team termed his return questionable.

The injury apparently happened in the second quarter, and Cutler went to the locker room early. He returned for the first series of the second half, but Collins started the second series.

This makes a bad situation worse for the Bears. Collins was horrible in his only start of the season, throwing four interceptions against the Carolina Panthers.

It’s still 14-0 with 8 minutes, 35 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
