Injured Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler updated his condition Thursday morning following surgery on his broken thumb.

Cutler sent out a tweet, "Surgery went great. Randy Viola is the best. My nurse isn't bad either @KristinCav ;). Be back as soon as I can."

Viola is the hand, wrist and elbow specialist at the clinic where Cutler had surgery on Wednesday.

Kristin Cav is Kristin Cavalleri, Cutler's former fiancee. There are rumors the two are back together.
