Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was forced to leave Sunday's game with an apparent injury after he was shoved to the ground on an interception return by the Arizona Cardinals. 

Jimmy Clausen came into the game in relief of Cutler, who was looked at by trainers and immediately sent to the locker room following the interception.

On the play, Cutler threw a pass well behind tight end Martellus Bennett, and the ball was intercepted by Tony Jefferson. As Jefferson brought the ball back toward the end zone, Cutler attempted to tackle him, and he was stiff-armed to the ground as the cornerback scored to make it a 28-14 game.

Cutler left the game and did not return, and after the game head coach John Fox said that the quarterback had suffered a pulled hamstring and will undergo further tests on Monday. 

If Cutler is on the shelf for an extended period, the Bears will likely bring back David Fales, who was moved to the practice squad last week.
