Bears lose another DT to torn ACL

Updated: October 7, 2013

Lake Forest, IL ( – Chicago Bears defensive tackle Nate
Collins will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

Collins suffered the injury late in the third quarter of Sunday’s 26-18 home
loss to New Orleans.

It’s another blow to a unit that lost tackle Henry Melton for the season
two weeks ago because of an ACL injury. He tore the knee ligament in a win at
Pittsburgh on Sept. 22.

The 25-year-old Collins totaled 14 tackles and one sack in five games (two
starts) this season.
