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

Ranking Dallas Cowboys' 10 Best Players in 2014

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

Philadelphia Eagles v Dallas Cowboys
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 player ...

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

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

Philadelphia Eagles v Dallas Cowboys
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 third-round draft pick ou ...

Terrell McClain Could Be a Sleeper on Defense for the Cowboys

Vivian Hsu Wedding Ceremony In Taipei
The Dallas Cowboys are in a tough spot having to replace top 2013 defenders Sean Lee, DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher. And considering that Lee missed a significant amount of time last year, while Ware was severely limited for health reasons, Hatcher—who made the Pro Bowl in a career year—might actually have left the biggest shoes to fill at Valley Ranch.  But don't be surprised if the Cowboys have very little trouble getting o ...
