Chicago Bears cornerback Kelvin Hayden's season is over before it started.

The veteran nickel back tore his hamstring and will undergo surgery, the team announced.

He's out for six to eight months.

Hayden was entering his ninth NFL season.

He played in every game last season for the Bears one year removed from a rough season dealing with injuries with the Atlanta Falcons.
