CHICAGO (CBS) — In what’s been a very forgettable year overall, the play of defensive end Willie Young has been a major bright spot for the Bears defense.
Since signing with the Bears as a free agent, Young earned the right to be on the field, particularly to rush the passer. Heading into today’s game, Young’s 10 sacks were a career high. Unfortunately for Young, his season is done and may be in line for a long rehab.
On the first drive of the third quarter, Young was helped off the field by trainers, as he was unable to put any pressure on his left leg. It was reported that Young suffered an Achilles injury and was out for the game.
