The Chicago Bears' depth at defensive tackle is going critical. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Nate Collins is lost for the season with a torn ACL.

The news couldn't come at a worse time for the Bears defense that's already lost Henry Melton for the season, and was missing Stephen Paea against the Saints.
The Bears are certain to scour the waiver wires and free agency for help, but its uncertain what's available.
Chicago is likely to move DE Corey Wooton inside with more frequency, and could even use DE Julius Peppers at defensive tackle in a pinch.
