Aside from Tony Romo, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler also went home hurt after he sustained a hamstring injury to his teams' loss versus the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

According to ESPN, Bears coach John Fox confirmed the injury sustained during an interception adding that Cutler would need to undergo more tests.

"Like I mentioned, it takes a while to run tests. Our medical people will inform me, and then I will inform you. But at this point he's got a pulled hamstring," Fox explained.

The coach also disputed reports saying that Cutler injured his right shoulder when he tried to tackle Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson.

"It's a hamstring [injury]," Fox clarified.

After leaving the game, Cutler was replaced by Jimmy Clausen but the Cardinals were able to pull away from them and seal the win, as per Chicago Tribune.

Fox explained that Clausen did his best to play for the team as Cutler's replacement.

"Any time you put a quarterback in that has gotten backup reps during the week, I think it's tough. All in all, I thought he did the best he could, and that's all you can ask for as a coach," the coach furthered.

Asked about the possible return of Cutler, Fox said they still have to wait for the results of the tests.

"It takes awhile to run tests. Our medical people will inform me, and then I will inform you," he added.

Meanwhile, Yahoo Sports said that this was not the first time that the quarterback got hurt after an interception since he also got injured last 2011 during a game versus the San Diego Chargers as he was trying to tackle a pick by Antoine Cason. He broke his right thumb as a result.

The same report mentioned that if Cutler will be out for more games, the reunion of Fox and Clausen, who were both previously part of the Carolina Panthers, will happen and gain be tested.

It is expected to be a tough game for the Bears on Sunday as they are set to face the Seattle Seahawks.

Chicago Sun-Times noted that the two home losses of the team made them realize that "reality is setting in."

"I hate losing - especially losing at home. This is a great sports city. They deserve a winner, they truly do. You look at how the city reacted when the (Blackhawks) won. And everybody wants to be a part of that. Everybody wants to be a champion. That's what we're working for," said outside linebacker Jared Allen.
