Cutler suffered a groin injury and left Sunday’s game against the Redskins after being sacked in the second quarter and didn’t return.
He was tackled by Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker on the play. He rolled over Baker as he was being tackled and stayed down. Players from both teams were seen immediately signaling for the trainers.
Cutler is set to have an MRI Monday.
