Houston's knee injury is not a major one, but he remains without a timetable for a return, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. This is great news for Houston, who has suffered two torn ACLs in the past three seasons and was unable to return after suffering a knee injury in Thursday's preseason finale. Houston should be considered week-to-week for now.
Houston recorded a sack and forced a fumble in Sunday's victory over the Titans. Houston was playing late in the fourth quarter, and made his impact against the Titans' backups. He's expected to be a rotational player who may not be consistent enough to be considered for IDP leagues.
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 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.
