Henry Melton concussed in Bears' preseason opener

Chicago Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton is playing under the franchise tag this season, trying to prove once again that he's worthy of a huge contract extension. But his preseason is off to a discouraging start.

Melton left Friday night's 24-17 loss to the Carolina Panthers with a concussion and didn't return.
