D.J. Williams out for rest of Chicago Bears' season

The Chicago Bears' replacement for Brian Urlacher will need to be replaced.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that middle linebacker D.J. Williams is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, according to source who has spoken with Williams. Rookie Jon Bostic will take over the position in Chicago.

Williams was off to a solid start this season taking Urlacher's place. But Bostic, who was taken in the second round of this year's draft to be Urlacher's long-term replacement, impressed in training camp. Bostic has a lot of promise, and is a nice option off the bench.

Still, Chicago recently lost defensive tackles Henry Melton and Nate Collins for the season. The Bears' offense is better than it has been in a long time, but the defense is not the same.
