NFL: Bears DT Henry Melton Out For Season With Torn ACL

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

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. DeMarcus Ware, the team ...

3 Dallas Cowboys Who Will Steal Starting Spots in Training Camp

Aug 5 2014 11:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Every year, players who weren't starters work their way up the depth chart. This year the Dallas Cowboys have a couple of players who are primed to steal a starting role.  Last year, players like George Selvie and Nick Hayden began as reserves with varying circumstances leading them to be thrust into the starting defense.  It is paramount the Cowboys create competition throughout the variety of positions of the offense and defense. If the Cowboys truly did create an aura of competition am ...

Dallas Cowboys: First Impressions from Training Camp

Jul 28 2014 7:01am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Dallas Cowboys have officially begun their 2014 training camp practices and, as is the case every year, it’s difficult to not over-analyze the early results. It’s always fun to see the players go at it with pads on, especially those players who are new to the team. The Cowboys have a number of those unknowns, too, including free agents like Henry Melton, the rookies, and even players like defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford and safety Matt J ...

Ranking Dallas Cowboys' 10 Best Players in 2014

Jul 24 2014 8:02am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

DallasCowboys.com recently published their list of the top 10 Cowboys heading into camp in 2014, so I figured I’d try my hand at ranking the best players on the roster. The key word there is “best.” I’m not looking to rank players in terms of how valuable they are to Dallas—that list would start and end with quarterback Tony Romo—but instead simply rank players based solely on their on-field talent. That means that the players aren’t competing ...

Meet Tyrone Crawford, Dallas Cowboys Defensive Tackle Set to Breakout in 2014

Jul 22 2014 8:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford is as big of a mystery as you’ll find in Dallas. He wasn’t a highly touted prospect coming out of college, and he certainly isn’t coming off of a season that flashed brilliance. Instead, Crawford is coming off of a season-ending injury and has only appeared in 16 games over the past two seasons—none of which he started. Yet, despite the unknown, Crawford may be the key to the revival of the Dallas defense. A 2012 ...
