The Bears have apparently settled on a roster replacement for injured defensive tackle Henry Melton, even though it will be hard for any committee of players to replace his value.

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears brought Landon Cohen in for a workout Tuesday, and are expected to sign him when he returns to Chicago today.

Melton tore his ACL Sunday night against the Steelers.

Cohen played for Bears defensive coordinator Mel Tucker in Jacksonville, and the scheme he was running in Dallas this year under Rod Marinelli is compatible with what the Bears are doing now.

Cohen has also been with the Patriots, Eagles, Cardinals and Seahawks.
