Bears DT Collins to miss rest of season
Coach Marc Trestman says Collins tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and that the recovery will take eight months. He was injured rushing Drew Brees during the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Trestman says Collins will have surgery soon in Pensacola, Fla.
Nose tackle Stephen Paea is also dealing with a toe injury that kept him out of Sunday's game.
