On wounded knee, Cutler does some shopping

Injured Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, at the center of a firestorm of controversy after he was removed from Sunday’s NFC Championship Game with a sprained knee, is OK to do a little shopping.

TMZ.com videotaped Cutler and his girlfriend Kristin Cavallari walking through Los Angeles on Wednesday. Cutler walks with a slight limp but keeps up with Cavallari just fine as she does her best to fend off the man with the video recorder.

Cutler reportedly suffered a Grade 2 sprain of the MCL. He was injured in the first half of the loss to the Green Bay Packers and was removed after one series in the third quarter.

He’s been roundly criticized by current and former players and it’s an issue that in a lot of ways has overshadowed the game itself. At this point, it is not believed Cutler will require surgery to repair the injury.
