The Bears had their worst nightmare unfold Sunday as quarterback Jay Cutler suffered an injury against the Redskins. Chicago announced the injury as a groin injury and Cutler has been ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Cutler was taken down for a sack by Chris Baker -- on that play he actually became the most-sacked Bears quarterback of all time having been taken down 158 times -- and rolled over awkwardly. He appeared to grab his hip and remained on the ground for a long time.

Josh McCown began warming up on the sidelines while Cutler was getting up off the ground. Cutler limped to the sideline and appeared to be holding his hip. 

As Cutler -- and a slew of medical trainers -- moved slowly to the locker room, McCown entered the game for Chicago.

We'll keep you updated as we know more about Cutler's injury. Anything serious would be a major blow to a quarterback who was having arguably the best year of his career so far.
