Skuta suffered a concussion during the Bear's preseason contest with the Titans on Sunday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Skuta will have to clear the league's concussion protocol before he can get back to action. As it stands now, Skuta figures to function as a special teamer this year, and whether the concussion will derail his projected outlook remains to be seen.
Skuta was released by the Jaguars on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Skuta spent the past two seasons in Jacksonville but dealt with a string of injuries last year that limited his productivity, as he only managed to record 18 tackles and one pass deflection through 13 games in 2016. The drop-off in performance was enough for the Jaguars to sever ties with the once-starting outside linebacker, who was slated to make $12.3 million over the next three seasons.
Skuta (elbow) is active Sunday against the Vikings. After being limited in practice all week, the veteran linebacker will attempt to play through the elbow aliment Sunday. He could see his reps closely monitored, in which case Myles Jack and Sean Porter may see expanded action.
Skuta (elbow) is considered questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings. Skuta has been limited in practice this week, but the elbow injury he suffered during Week 13's loss to the Broncos may not be severe enough to rule him out for additional time just yet. If he's unable to go, however, Myles Jack and Sean Porter would be in line for additional reps at outside linebacker.
Skuta injured his elbow during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Skuta was forced to the sideline due to the elbow injury, while the severity of the issue is still uncertain. Arthur Brown and Myles Jack figure to see additional action at outside linebacker if Skuta misses additional time.
