03:23 PM ET 11.26 | Chicago Bears guard Lance Louis has been placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2012 season after tearing his ACL against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. Following Jay Cutler's interception to Minnesota cornerback Antoine Winfield, Lance Louis was blindsided by Vikings defense end Jared Allen, launching himself high on Louis, buckling Louis' knee on the hit and tearing his ACL.

Cheap shot by Allen. Should have been flagged. I see some money coming out of Allen's pockets in the near future.

Jared Allen is a dirty piece of ****. I'm hoping they put a bounty on his mullet in 2 weeks and take the redneck out. Stupid hick

Yea, we can't have this tackling stuff going on. Can't hit their knees, can'y hit their heads, can't hit them from behind. Just give em spray cans of paint and let em hose each other down, then we can make some smores at half time and all link arms

Maybe they can all wear dresses and high heel shoes.

His neck is Red? Really? So what color does that make Louis' neck?

If you can't hit a guy in the head, and you can't go for his legs, that doesn't leave much else but the body, does it?

I didn't see the game, though.

If the situation were reversed he would've hit Allen the same way.

It's football.

They had a bounty on his mullet already, that's why he got rid of it.

Whether or not this hit was cheap is a debateable, but forgive me if I am wrong, but wasn't Louis in the field of play? Allen didn't cut block him, nor hit him any where near his knee. He actually lept in the air to deliver the hit.

Cheap shot? Maybe. Unneccessary? Probably Should have Louis kept his "head on a swivel"? Absolutely.

All the way back in Jr High Football, you are taught to protect yourself by constantlybeing aware of those around you. Louis must share some of the blame for his injury.
