Matthew Stockman

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with an injury after taking a high hit.

Jay Cutler left during the fourth quarter of the Chicago Bears' game against the Minnesota Vikings after taking a hit to the head. According to CBS Sports, the injury is to the quarterback's neck or shoulder.

Cutler was hit by Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who was flagged on the play.

The starter finished completing 22 of his 44 passes for 260 yards. He threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery to bring the Bears within 14-7 in the second quarter but also threw two critical interceptions later on. In the third quarter, Cutler overthrew receiver Brandon Marshall, leading to an interception and 56-yard touchdown return by Vikings safety Harrison Smith. That gave Minnesota a 21-7 lead with 3:27 to play in the third quarter.

Jason Campbell replaced Cutler on the next offensive series in the 21-14 loss at Mall of America Field on Sunday. The backup completed 6-of-9 passes for 64 yards and a 16-yard touchdown pass to Marshall with 1:48 left in the game.
