Bears lose Cutler for a month, Packers' Finley still in ICU


The NFC North is a logjam with the Packers, Bears and Lions all tied atop the standings at 4-3.

The future of the division could be decided by health -- a luxury very few teams are fortunate enough to have at this point of the season.

Sunday's injury additions to the Packers and Bears were downright scary. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler had a hard time walking to the locker room after suffering a groin injury. The Bears announced today that Cutler will miss at least a month with a groin tear.

Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Tillman left with an injury, as did linebacker Lance Briggs, who is out 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury, according to NBC Sports.

Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a frightening neck injury that forced doctors and trainers to take him off the field on a gurney. ESPN reports that Finley has regained almost all movement in his body, but he remains in the intensive care unit at a local Green Bay hospital.

Tom Pelissero reports that Finley is not expected to require surgery.
