Shark Bites

Bears DE Willie Young left Sunday's loss to the Lions early with an injury to his left Achilles' tendon. We'll likely get more info on the severity come Monday. Young entered the game with a career-high 10 sacks this season, but he cooled way off after a torrid start for IDP owners. We'll see how Chicago's DE situation plays out in the offseason, with Lamarr Houston rehabbing a torn ACL and Jared Allen turning 33 in April.

The Bears confirmed Monday that DE Willie Young tore his left Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss to the Lions. That injury that often leaves players at less than 100% even after they return the following season. The late date of Young's injury threatens his start to 2015 and could impact his performance throughout the year. We'll keep an eye on his recovery through the offseason. Young began 2014 as a big-time IDP breakout after signing with the Bears in free agency, though he trailed off in the 2nd half of the season.

The Bears have signed former Lions DE Willie Young to a 3-year, $9 million contract.  He joins Lamarr Houston to likely give Chicago a new pair of starters on the edges.  Young spent most of his 4 Detroit seasons as a situational player.  He sports just 6 career sacks but has contributed much more hidden pressure.  He'll carry some sleeper potential in our 2014 IDP rankings if the Bears do plan to start him.
