In the third quarter of the Miami Dolphins‘ 31-28 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday, quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a hit that sidelined him for the remainder of the game.
According to multiple NFL insiders, Cutler apparently suffered two cracked ribs on the play, and will miss at least two or three weeks of action.
Dolphins believe QB Jay Cutler suffered two cracked ribs today that could sideline him two to three weeks, per source. More tests coming.

With Cutler injured, backup quarterback Matt Moore took over with the Dolphins trailing the Jets 21-14. The former Oregon State standout threw one interception, but he ultimately led the Dolphins on an impressive fourth quarter comeback, throwing two touchdown passes in the game’s final 12 minutes to seal the win.
If Moore continues to play well while Cutler is out, Miami head coach Adam Gase is going to have a full-fledged quarterback controversy on his hands. With Cutler struggling mightily since coming out of retirement to join the Dolphins, Gase is going to have an extremely difficult time going back to the 12-year NFL veteran if Moore plays at a high level.
Why the hell would you play Jay Cutler if Matt Moore can take your team down the field in the 4th quarter like that!
