Apparently Cutler said a week ago that there were a couple ligaments they are worried about and if injury was a high ankle sprain he would not need a walking boot. Reports tell the score's Matt Abatacola (never could spell his name), that he had a torn tendon in his ankle. They needed 4-6 weeks before they can evaluate if they need to do surgery or not. That means by the end of this week they will know if they need to do surgery or not. If they do, his season is officially over.
