Jay Cutler to start throwing soon?

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he hopes to begin throwing in a few weeks as he recovers from surgery on his right thumb.

During Cutler’s Nov. 23 surgery, doctors inserted three screws and two pins to stabilize the right thumb.

Cutler said he had an X-ray last week and had the stitches removed on Wednesday.

“We were doing some grip stuff this past week, trying to get some flexibility and mobility back in there,” Cutler said Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “The next couple of weeks hopefully I’ll be able to throw the football and hopefully some of this pain subsides.”

“Everything is kind of on track, it’s just a matter of letting that bone really heal and maybe taking the pins out, maybe not,” Cutler said. “It’s just time and time is not really on our side right now, but that’s the only thing we can really do.”
