McClellin was injured while making a tackle on the first play of the second half. He left the game with a team-leading five tackles (four solo).
Before suffering a knee injury on Sunday, McClellin had played every single snap this season. He has come a long way in Vic Fangio’s new 3-4 defense, after failing to catch on as a defensive end and as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme.
The Bears will miss McClellin most as a run defender while he is sidelined.
