Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Mel Tucker is determined to keep up his side's high standards on defense despite suffering numerous injuries.

The Bears have lost defensive lineman Henry Melton and Nate Collins to ACL tears this season, while linebacker DJ Williams is also out for the year with a torn pectoral muscle.

Tucker told reporters: "It is what it is. I think we're all in this thing together.

"We feel like we have a good group. We feel like we can do what we need to do to perform and play winning football.

"In terms of the challenge, every day is a challenge regardless of the situation. But that's why we play this game. That's part of it."

The Bears are 4-2 in their season going into week seven.
