  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Re-signs with Chicago

    Houston-Carson (forearm) signed a one-year, $1.77 million contract with the Bears on Saturday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Houston-Carson has primarily played on special teams during his six-year NFL career, though he played a season-high 397 defensive snaps during 2021. He recorded 51 tackles (33 solo), one interception and two fumble recoveries in 13 games before suffering a broken arm Week 14. It's unclear where Houston-Carson stands in his recovery, though he should be ready for training camp.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Ends season on injured reserve

    Houston-Carson (forearm) was placed on injured reserve Dec. 20, and he ended the season with 51 tackles, an interception and four passes defensed.

    After playing a backup role early in the season, Houston-Carson saw heavy snaps over a four-week period (Week 7 through Week 11) that helped him post the best season of his six-year career. Unfortunately, he broke his arm in Week 14, and he'll try to recover from surgery fully ready for the 2022 season. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and if he can land a starting role, he showed the ability to post solid tackle totals, which could make him a sleeper IDP option.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Goes on injured reserve

    The Bears placed Houston-Carson (forearm) on injured reserve Monday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Houston-Carson broke his arm in the Bears' loss to the Packers in Week 14. He'll soon undergo surgery to address the injury, so his move to IR was merely a formality. In a corresponding move, the Bears activated offensive tackle Germain Ifedi (knee) from IR.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Out for season

    Houston-Carson broke his arm during the Bears' 45-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday and will be out for the season, according to head coach Matt Nagy, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Houston-Carson was filling in for Xavier Crawford, who left earlier in the game with a concussion. With Houston-Carson now done for the year and Crawford's status for Week 15 up in the air, the Bears' secondary could be stretched thin when they take on the Vikings in Week 15.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Sustains arm injury

    Houston-Carson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to an arm injury.

    Houston-Carson saw some playing time at cornerback during the second half of Sunday's matchup after Xavier Crawford suffered a concussion. However, Houston-Carson sustained his arm injury shortly after taking over as the team's third cornerback. If he's unable to return, Kindle Vildor and Marqui Christian could see a slight uptick in playing time.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Strong outing

    Houston-Carson posted nine tackles in the Bears' 16-13 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

    Since his playing time spiked in Week 6, Houston-Carson has posted at least six tackles in each contest, and he has become a solid IDP option at the safety position.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Scores touchdown

    Houston-Carson returned a fumbled punt for a touchdown while adding six tackles in the Bears' 29-27 loss to the Steelers on Monday.

    Houston-Carson has recorded 23 tackles over the last three games, and his performance this week came with Tashaun Gipson back in the lineup after missing time with a hip injury. Should Houston-Carson retain a similar role after Chicago's Week 10 bye, he should be considered a solid IDP option

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Leads team in tackles

    Houston-Carson had six tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's 33-22 loss to the 49ers.

    The 28-year-old made a spot start last week with Tashaun Gipson sidelined, and he played a significant role again Sunday with Eddie Jackson exiting early with a hamstring injury. Houston-Carson has filled an every-down role the past two weeks and has 17 total tackles and two pass breakups.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Comes up big in spot start

    Houston-Carson recovered a fumble and posted 11 tackles in the Bears' 38-3 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    With Tashaun Gipson (hip) sitting this one out, Houston-Carson came up with a huge fantasy performance, but when Gipson was in the lineup, he hadn't posted more than three tackles in any contest. If Gipson should miss more time, Houston-Carson could be worth streaming in IDP leagues.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Re-signs with Bears

    Houston-Carson (concussion) re-signed with the Bears on Thursday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

    Houston-Carson, a 2016 sixth-round draft pick, has played with Chicago for the past five seasons. During his last campaign, the safety appeared in all 16 games and played a career-high 90 snaps on defense. The 27-year-old also managed to record career-highs in tackles (15), interceptions (one) and pass breakups (three) during his 2020 season. Houston-Carson will likely continue to contribute on special teams and aim to compete for a larger safety role in 2021.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Suffers concussion Sunday

    Houston-Carson (concussion) will not return to Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Saints, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Houston-Carson and fellow depth safety Sherrick McManis (hamstring) will both be unavailable for the remainder of Sunday's contest. Both McManis and Houston-Carson are regular contributors on special teams.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Intercepts first pass of season

    Houston-Carson picked off a pass while adding one tackle in Chicago's 23-16 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    Despite his big play, Houston-Carson has just three tackles on the season and doesn't have enough of a role to be considered a reliable IDP option.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Back with Bears

    Houston-Carson has re-signed with the Bears, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

    The 2016 sixth-rounder will thus reprise his reserve safety/special teams role with the Bears in 2020. The 26-year-old logged only six tackles with the team this past season, numbers that keep the 6-0, 202-pounder off the IDP radar.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Re-signs with Bears

    Houston-Carson re-signed with the Bears on a one-year deal Friday.

    Houston-Carson has accumulated 22 tackles (18 solo) across 32 games during his three years in Chicago. He has primarily been a special teamer for the Bears, while also providing safety depth. He projects to hold on to the same role should he ultimately earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

  • Deandre Houston-Carson: Non-tendered by Chicago

    Houston-Carson entered free agency Wednesday after the Bears declined to tender him a contract for 2019, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

    Houston-Carson played in 13 games with Chicago last season, accumulating 10 tackles while working mostly on special teams. The 25-year-old is unlikely to see meaningful snaps on defense no matter where he lands during the offseason.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Totals 10 tackles in 2018

    Houston-Carson had 10 tackles (eight solo) in 13 games with the Bears in 2018.

    Houston-Carson was again heavily relied upon on special teams for the Bears, as he reached double-digit defensive snaps in only two games. The 25-year-old is a restricted free agent but the Bears are likely to offer him a tender given his heavy usage on special teams.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Will play Sunday

    Houston-Carson (ribs) is officially active for Sunday's wild-card game against Philadelphia.

    Houston-Carson was listed as questionable after not practicing Friday, but is apparently good to go for the Bears' playoff opener. The 25-year-old should serve in his usual special-teams heavy role versus the Eagles.
