Chicago Bears defensive tackle Nate Collins will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, the team announced Monday.

The news comes just two weeks after Chicago lost Pro Bowl defensive tackle Henry Melton to the same injury. Collins took over the starting spot after Melton tore his ACL.

Collins, who is in his second season with the Bears, injured his leg early in the second half of Chicago's 26-18 loss to the Saints. The Bears have only three healthy defensive tackles left on roster: Stephen Paea, Zach Minter and Landon Cohen.
