Cutler, 38, suffered a few injuries during his career and, while he feels fine physically, he revealed in an episode of Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” that he’s starting to feel the neurological effects of repeated blows to the head from playing the game.
“I would say memory and stuff like that,” the former Pro Bowler said. “CTE is coming at some point… without a doubt.”
He estimated he suffered more than a dozen concussions in his entire football career.
“The Texans one was bad. I think we were playing Washington and I got — it was a DB, I forgot who it was — and I just got slung around. He just slung me around and threw me down and the side of my head hit and that’s one of the only times I was out out. I was out for a second, then got up and walked off,” he said.
“I don’t know. I think if you play long enough, it’s gonna happen to you.”
Cutler played in 153 games during his career. He recorded 35,133 passing yards, 227 touchdown passes and 160 interceptions.
