TE Fontel Mines Gone for the Year w/ Torn ACL

The Sun-Times reports that the Bears have lost TE Fontel Mines for the season:

Fontel Mines will miss the season, a source close to the player said, after an MRI revealed Tuesday that he tore the ACL in his left knee during a drill in practice Monday. Mines was running a route in the flat when he got tangled up with safety Craig Steltz and went to the ground. “It’s part of the game,” he said. “I have to live by that everything happens for a reason saying right now. It’s tough. It’s disappointing.” Mines signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent from Virginia in 2007.
