04:47 PM ET 09.27 | The Chicago Bears defense suffered a devastating blow last week during their win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, when defensive tackle Henry Melton went down with what appeared to be a serious injury. It didn't take long for the team to announce Melton had suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and today they have officially brought his year to an end. The team placed Melton on the injured reserve list, which ends his 2013-14 season effective immediately. With Melton now set to watch the rest of the season from the sidelines, the team went on and signed Landon Cohen to take over his roster spot.

Landon Cohen's favorite song? "I've been everywhere" by Johnny Cash

"I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere."

I think Cohen was on the Pats for a cup of coffee once.
