Jay Cutler did not return from the locker room after throwing three first-half interceptions Sunday.

But this was no benching, the team insists.

Rather, the Dolphins say Cutler suffered a concussion and will not return. Matt Moore was in the huddle when the second half began.

This is the second time in five games Cutler has been knocked out of a game.

He left the Jets game with broken ribs, an injury that kept him out the following week.

Cutler’s stats before leaving the game: 6 of 12 for 83 yards, a touchdown and the three picks.

Meanwhile, Jermon Bushrod left the game in the third quarter with a foot injury and went to the locker room under supervision of Miami’s medical staff. The team listed him as questionable to return.
