Bears lose another DT to torn ACL

Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - 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.
