Miami Dolphins Fear Worst as Jay Cutler Heads for X-Rays

Jay Cutler

According to’s Ian Rapoport, the Miami Dolphins fear that starting quarterback Jay Cutler may have suffered cracked ribs early in the third quarter of Sunday’s 31-28 victory over the New York Jets.

If the injury is confirmed by the team, it would likely mean Cutler would miss some time. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase may be facing a quarterback dilemma either way after backup Matt Moore led the Dolphins to a comeback victory over the Jets.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter seemed to confirm Rapoport’s initial report when he tweeted an update to Cutler’s rib injury:

Cutler won’t have much time to heal this week, as the team is set to take on the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. More details on Cutler’s status will come as soon as they become available.
