Preliminary diagnosis is Achilles tear for Willie Young


The initial news isn’t good for Bears defensive end Willie Young. Per a league source, the preliminary evaluation indicates that Young suffered a torn Achilles tendon during Sunday’s loss to the Lions.

An MRI will be performed in the morning.

Young, who spent four years with the Lions before joining Chicago, produced 10 sacks this season. He had a total of six in four prior NFL seasons.
