Chicago Bears DE Henry Melton (knee) tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament in the team's Week 3 game, and is out for the season.
Huddle Up: This is brutal for Melton, who was playing on a one-year deal because of the franchise tag. Hopefully he can recover quickly. As for the Bears defense, it will feel the loss of one of the better pass-rushing defensive tackles in the league.

Chicago Bears DE Henry Melton suffered an apparent left knee injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He tried to walk to the sidelines, but could not make it and was carted off to the locker room. DE Nate Collins replaced him.
Huddle Up: It didn't look good for Melton, but we'll await a more precise diagnosis before hitting the panic button. That said, Melton is a key member of a Bears' defense that applies pressure and creates turnovers; his absence could knock them down a tic in the fantasy rankings.
