Houston has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports. Houston famously tore the ACL in his other knee in 2014 while celebrating a meaningless sack in the closing minutes of a blowout loss. He bounced back with a team-high eight sacks last season, making this yet another major loss for an injury-ravaged Chicago defense. If there's a silver lining, it's that first-round rookie Leonard Floyd could get more snaps in what's starting to look like a rebuilding year.
Houston suffered a knee injury and will not return for the Bears' matchup against the Eagles on Monday night, ESPN reports. The details of his injury are unclear at this point in time. Leonard Floyd will presumably take Houston's place at outside linebacker for the remainder of the game.
Houston has been knocked out of Monday's matchup with the Eagles due to a knee injury. The severity of the injury is currently unknown. Expect an update on his status when the team releases more information.
Houston recorded four tackles Saturday against the Chiefs. Houston was able to pressure Alex Smith into a hurried pass in addition to the tackles he recorded, but he didn't have a major impact against a Chiefs' offense that moved the ball up and down the field throughout the first half. He's looking to build on a strong finish to the 2015 season, and he could emerge as a useful IDP option.
Houston notched two tackles Thursday against the Patriots. Houston started at defensive end, but with the Patriots getting passes out of quarterback Jimmy Garropolo's hands quickly, he was unable to generate much pressure. After posting seven sacks over the last nine games of 2015, he's worth consideration as an IDP option, especially if he can put together a full season of solid play.
