Jay Cutler hurt the thumb on his throwing hand during the Bears’ loss to the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Cutler had a cast on his thumb after the game and will have x-rays taken on Tuesday. During the postgame press conference, Cutler confirmed two facts. First, that he’s concerned about his injury. Second, that quarterbacks need thumbs. Via ESPN:
“I’m concerned,” he said. “As a quarterback, you need your right thumb.”
In case you were wondering, Carson Wentz has a real beaut of a right thumb. Just look at that thing. I reckon you can really grip a football with a thumb like that.
