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."
