Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler Out of Play Due to Ankle Sprain
Jay Cutler, quarterback for the Chicago Bears, just recently returned to the field after suffering a groin injury, but his return to play didn’t last for long. Due to an unrelated injury, a high ankle sprain, Cutler has been pulled out play again, and is now considered as week-to-week with the sprain.
The ankle injury occurred in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. Cutler was taken out and the Chicago Bears ended up losing the game to the Lions. It’s an unfortunate injury, especially considering the fact that Cutler just returned from the groin injury he sustained in October.
Josh McCown, the backup quarterback, will be taking over Cutler’s position again until he is ready for play. McCown has been covering for Cutler in his absences this season, and he has been doing a good job.
Ankle sprains are common sports injuries. You can help to avoid ankle sprains by always stretching properly before and after play, wearing the proper footwear, and always playing on appropriate surfaces. Of course, not all injuries can be avoided, so if you do sustain an injury, stop playing and seek treatment. Playing through the pain can worsen the injury.
We wish Cutler the best with his recovery and hope to see him back on the field again soon!
