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

If you’re looking to receive treatment from the Dallas Cowboys athletic training staff these days, you’ll have to take a number. The injury bug has taken up permanent residence in Valley Ranch early in this season.

Dallas Cowboys Defense Must Get to Drew Brees or Relive 2013 Humiliation

Sep 25 2014 2:52am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

IRVING, Texas — So far the Dallas Cowboys defense has played better than expected. All those doomsday proclamations about this being the worst defense in league history in 2014 are wrong. Yes, the Cowboys are better than that—much better. And they are better than they were last year when they gave up the most yards in the league, the most in team history and the third-most in NFL history. But before we starting singing the praises of a unit that still ranks a ...

If Cowboys Don't Get Pressure vs. Titans, They Should Give Michael Sam a Shot

Sep 12 2014 5:10pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With a patchwork, no-name defensive line, it was surprising to see the Dallas Cowboys record only a single sack in their Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Facing a quarterback who had the ninth-highest sack allowance rate in the league last year, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com, the 'Boys hit Colin Kaepernick five times but couldn't sustain constant pressure.  With so many injuries on that side of the ball—Justin Durant is now out, too, according to ESPNDallas ...

Titans vs. Cowboys: Dallas' Game Plan and the Urgent Need to Stop the Run

Sep 10 2014 9:09pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Outside of protecting the ball—which will be their top priority after the four-turnover meltdown in the 28-17 season-opener loss to the San Francisco 49ers—stopping the run will be the primary focus of the Dallas Cowboys heading into Sunday's matchup against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans ran it 38 times for 162 yards in a surprisingly dominant victory against the Kansas City Chiefs in their season opener. And unlike the Cowboys, who handed ball off only to running ...

3 NFL Draft Prospects Cowboys Fans Should Watch in CFB Week 2

Just because the college football season is in its infancy doesn't mean it's too early to look forward to the 2015 NFL draft. The best teams are the ones that are built through the draft. If the Dallas Cowboys want to become a great team, they must stack successful drafts on top of one another.  Look no further than the 2013 Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. From 2010-2012, they selected five Pro Bowl players in the draft, while the Cowboys only selected thr ...
