Acho started Sunday's game against the Vikings and finished with four tackles in 55 snaps, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Meanwhile, last season's holdovers from the Marc Trestman regime, Willie Young and Lamarr Houston, finished with seven and four snaps, respectively at outside linebacker. It appears neither of those players are deemed appropriate fits for defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme, so look for Acho to continue to dominate the snaps at the linebacker spot opposite Pernell McPhee.
