SHARE Bears’ Collins injures knee, will have MRI

Bears defensive tackle Nate Collins will have an MRI Monday to determine the damage on his left knee, which he injured Sunday while rushing against Saints guard Jahri Evans.

The defensive tackle stayed on the ground for three or four minutes and then was helped into the locker room. His was ruled out for the remainder of the Bears’ 26-18 loss to New Orleans.

The blow was huge for the Bears, who started Sunday’s game without two starting defensive tackles: Henry Melton, who tore his knee two weeks ago, and Stephen Paea, who has turf toe.

“Hopefully it’s something minor where he can bounce back,” said rookie defensive end David Bass, who played in his first NFL game Sunday.
