Miami Dolphins starting QB Jay Cutler sustained a chest injury which took him out of the game vs. the Jets on Sunday in the third quarter. Before the injury Cutler was 12-16 for 138 yards 2Tds and an INT. When he left the game, Miami was trailing the Jets 28-14.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that the injury is indeed two broken ribs:
Dolphins believe QB Jay Cutler suffered two cracked ribs today that could sideline him two to three weeks, per source. More tests coming.

Matt Moore would come in to relieve the injured Cutler to toss two fourth quarter tds to Kenny Stills en-route to a 31-28 victory at home.
Miami will be taking on the Baltimore Ravens on the road on Thursday night. Miami head coach Adam Gase hasn’t committed to naming Moore as the starter yet. Here’s Gase’s comments on Cutler.

Obviously Gase’s comments came before we had any idea of the broken ribs. Now that it looks like Cutler will be out to to three weeks, Moore is now the probably starter for Thursday.
Cutler was brought out of retirement and signed by the Dolphins after starting QB Ryan Tannehill suffered a season ending knee injury early in training camp. Cutler who has had previous experience working with Gase came in to give a veteran presence at the position.
With Cutler now reportedly out for several weeks, will the Dolphins pick up another QB? I believe there’s one that’s available right now that’s looking to get signed.
