Reports: Bears' Cutler broke thumb on throwing hand

November 20, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The Bears have neither confirmed nor denied the injury.

Cutler apparently suffered the injury making a tackle after an interception during the team's 31-20 victory over the Chargers at Soldier Field on Sunday.

The injury is expected to keep Cutler out of the Bears lineup for possibly six to eight weeks as reports say he'll need surgery.

There are six games remaining in the regular season, and Culter's injury comes as the Bears are fighting for a playoff spot.
