Henry Melton Leaves Game With Leg Injury

Jonathan Daniel

Henry Melton left the game with a leg injury, and was taken to the locker room.

Things went from bad to worse in very short order, as on the Vikings' second touchdown drive, Henry Melton left the game with what looked like a knee injury, and was later taken to the locker room on a cart.

On a day when Stephen Paea is inactive with an injury of his own, the Bears are starting to run out of options, particularly with the team's best interior pass rusher leaving.

The Vikings struck first with the first touchdown the Bears' allowed on the opponent's first drive, and struck again after a Jay Cutler interception was returned to the five yard line. Down 14-0 is not a hole the Bears wanted to find themselves in, particularly when Adrian Peterson already rushing for 74 yards on 8 touches with two touchdowns. Also, one completion on one attempt for 11 yards gives Christian Ponder a quarterback rating of 112.5 early.

Let's hope things can get turned around, quickly.
