Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a high ankle sprain and will not play this week against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Chicago Bears announced today that Jay Cutler is week-to-week with a high ankle sprain suffered in yesterday's loss to the Detroit Lions.

After the contest, coach Marc Trestman said Cutler suffered the injury in the second quarter.

"He was rolled up on in the second quarter," said Trestman. "They taped him up at halftime, and they said he was good to go and he got back in there and he worked at it."

Cutler was visibly bothered by the injury and limped his way through an unproductive second half, before giving way to Josh McCown in the final two minutes.

High ankle sprains have a tendency to linger and the week-to-week designation, instead of day-to-day, makes it unlikely Cutler will play this week against the Baltimore Ravens. Although, with the way McCown is playing, that may not be such a bad thing.
