Lovie Smith denies that Jay Cutler has an MCL sprain

Last night it was reported that Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a sprained MCL.

When addressing the media today, Bears head coach Lovie Smith denied that Cutler has such an injury.

“What knee?” Smith said when asked about Cutler’s knee injury.

But the knee injury is legitimate and that is why the team has listed Cutler with a knee injury on the report.

“Jay is good to go,” Smith said. “We are hoping he will play the best game he has ever been able to play.”

It’s pretty obvious that Cutler has a knee injury, but the most important thing is that he’ll play Sunday.
