According to the Bears' website, injured nose tackle Dusty Dvoracek is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery Friday to determine the severity of the injury he suffered to his right knee Saturday night against the Giants.

Dvoracek, who was injured while sacking Andre Woodson late in the third quarter, has already been diagnosed with a sprained MCL (medial collateral ligament).

But team doctors Gordon Nuber and Mark Bowen will determine in the Friday procedure if Dvoracek also has torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), which would end his season.
