Bears_Henry_Melton_2013 [1]Chicago Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton tore the ACL in his left knee Sunday night and will miss the rest of the season, coach Marc Trestman said Monday.

Trestman said Melton, who received the Bears’ franchise tag in the offseason, is “terribly disappointed.”

“We lost a very good player,” Trestman said. “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.”
