Shoul­der surgery to end sea­son for Bears’ Cut­ler

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

LAKE FOR­EST, ILL. | Chicago quar­ter­back Jay Cut­ler will have sea­son-end­ing surgery on his right shoul­der, the lat­est blow in a lost sea­son for the Bears.

Coach John Fox an­nounced Thursday that the vet­eran quar­ter­back will have an op­er­a­tion to re­pair the labrum in his shoul­der on Satur­day. Matt Barkley fig­ures to start his sec­ond straight game when the Bears (2-9) host San Fran­cisco (1-10) in a matchup be­tween strug­gling teams on Sun­day.

Cut­ler in­jured his shoul­der dur­ing a loss to the New York Giants on Nov. 20 but fin­ished the game. Fox ini­tially in­sisted the in­jury was not sea­son-end­ing. But after work­ing through treat­ment op­tions, Cut­ler won’t play again this sea­son and he may have thrown his last pass for Chicago.
