The Chicago Bears have re-signed defensive lane Austen Lane to replace starter Willie Young, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a torn Achilles.

Lane spent the preseason with Chicago before being released during cuts.

Lane has played in 30 games in his career since being selected in the fifth round of the 2010 draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lane has also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions.

Young leads the Bears with a career-high 10 sacks this season. He injured his Achilles in last week’s loss to the Lions.
