if they are limp and thin on the top then they need a feed of Nitrogen. if they have been well fed and are thin on the top then it sounds like a root rot and there are many of them including Verticillium , Colletotricum or Rhizoctonia or Fusarium. Good rotation is important. No chemical control is available.
