Chicago Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton will miss the rest of the 2013 NFL season due to a torn left ACL.

Chicago Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton will miss the rest of the 2013 NFL season due to a torn left ACL. 

According to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune, Melton "planted awkwardly on his left leg and crumpled to the turf clutching his left knee" in the fourth quarter of the Bears' 40-23 road win against the winless Pittsburgh Steelers

Before he suffered the injury, Melton recovered a fumble by Steelers running back Felix Jones which led to a Robbie Gould field goal to give the Bears a 27-10 lead in the third quarter. 

Melton then took to Twitter to thank the team and his fans for the support. He wrote,"Hey! Thanks for all the love and support...today starts a new day for a different journey God has planned for me.."

Bears coach Mark Trestman himself confirmed Melton will be out for the remainder of the regular season and faces "a long-term rehabilitation." 

Trestman said it's a development which requires the Bears to respond accordingly, per ESPN Chicago. 

"We lost a very good player. Unfortunately it's a next-man-up situation where the next guy has to come up and be ready to play and help our football team. We're not happy about it, but the downside of the National Football League is players are going to get hurt, and the team has to respond." 

Campbell notes a suitable replacement has to fill in for Melton, who plays the 3-technique which involves lining up between an offensive guard and an offensive tackle. This technique is an important component of the Bears' Cover-2 defense.

Among those who will likely be tapped are Nate Collins, Stephen Paea, Corey Wotton or Julius Peppers.

Melton, who was given an $8.9 million franchise tag prior to this season, is in his fourth year in the NFL. So far, he has amassed 15.5 tackles and three forced fumbles in his career

ARLINGTON, Texas — Brock Osweiler won’t play a meaningful snap for the Denver Broncos until Peyton Manning gets hurt or retires. The third-year quarterback is closer to ready for that role than he’s ever been. Osweiler led four scoring drives in an efficient final tuneup for a third year behind Manning, and the Broncos beat the Cowboys 27-3 Thursday night, sending Dallas to the fifth winless preseason in franchise history.

Could Dallas Cowboys' 2014 Defense Become Worst Unit in NFL History?

Aug 13 2014 9:57pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Dallas Cowboys did not exactly have an elite defense in 2013. They were 26th in points allowed (432), 30th in passing yards allowed (4,589) and 27th in rushing yards allowed (2,056). Not only that, but their 415.3 yards per game allowed ranked them dead last, and it was not that close. With a defense like that, there would be nowhere to go but up, right? Unfortunately for the Cowboys, that's not the case. D ...
