Bears DL Willie Young ready for starting role
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bears defensive end Willie Young is poised to see a bigger role on defense with defensive lineman Lamarr Houston (knee) going on injured reserve.

"Obviously it’s always tough whenever a guy goes down. But at the same time nothing changes for me whatsoever," Young said, per ESPN.

Young has played in 323 snaps this season despite not being a starter. He leads the team with seven sacks.

"What I bring to the table personally is what I bring to the table," Young said. "I’ll continue to bring that to the table to the best of my ability. But besides that, like I said it’s really tough when you lose a guy -- starter, great player across the board. We’ve just got to continue to try to get better day by day. I’ll just keep bringing the pain, baby. That’s all. Ain’t nothing more to it. I’m going to just keep doing what I do."

Willie Young notches two sacks in Week 6 win vs. Falcons
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bears defensive send Willie Young racked up three tackles and two sacks in his team's 27-13 win over the Falcons in Week 6.

Young was largely quiet in the win until late in the fourth quarter, when he sacked Matt Ryan on third down around midfield. On the next drive, he came through with a second sack on first down right before the two-minute warning, and the Falcons were unable to recover, throwing an incomplete pass on fourth-and-1 on their final offensive play. Young already has seven sacks in six games, proving to be a very adept free-agent pickup for the Bears defense.

Bears DST comes up big
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Overlooked after a poor Week 1 performance, the Bears DST came up big Sunday night at San Francisco. Chicago forced four turnovers by Colin Kaepernick, with rookie corner Kyle Fuller making two fourth-quarter interceptions.

Defensive end Jared Allen forced a fumble, safety Danny McCray recovering. Safety Chris Conte made his second interception of the season before leaving with a shoulder injury. Defensive end Willie Young led a strong pass rush with four sacks.

Riding a lot of momentum, the rejuvenated Bears DST visits the Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 3.

Bears defense notches one turnover vs. Bills
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Bears defense recorded one sack and one turnover in the team's 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills Sunday.

Safety Chris Conte stepped in front of a Bills receiver on Buffalo's first offensive drive of the second half, and the Bears were able to score a game-tying touchdown on the next possession. Free-agent addition Willie Young recorded the defense's only sack of the game in the first quarter. The Bears could have trouble containing a quality San Francisco offense in Week 2.
