LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears say middle linebacker D.J. Williams will miss the remainder of the season because of a chest injury.
Williams tore his left pectoral muscle during Thursday’s win over the New York Giants.
Coach Marc Trestman was not sure how the injury occurred. Williams, signed in the offseason to help replace Brian Urlacher, left in the third quarter, the latest injury for a defense that’s had its share. The Bears visit Washington next week, and with Williams out, rookie Jonathan Bostic figures to start in his place.
