Dvoracek hurt. Torn ACL/MCL sprain? Status unclear

In a shock to no one, Dusty Dvoracek is reportedly out for the season:

Defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek, who had a sack, tackle for loss and quarterback hit Saturday night against the New York Giants, will miss the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee, a source close to the player said. It's the fourth straight season-ending injury for the hard worker who has had a star-crossed career since being selected in the third round in 2006. [Source]

Really kind of stinks. I like the guy, he works hard.. but he really is made of glass.

Look for Matt Toeina to make the 53-man now for depth on the d-line.

EDIT by ChiFan13: Seems there's some confusion on this story. Biggs originally posted this story, but the Bears haven't made an announcement yet. This much we do know: Dvoracek has a knee injury - the severity of which is undetermined at this time. (Helmet tip - EricEmpire)

Update from Vaugh McClure's twitter:

  Lovie said Dusty Dvoracek has MCL tear and has NOT been ruled out for the season. More tests to come Wed.

And here's a link to an article in the Tribune. (Thanks to DisCUBbobulated)
