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 signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Monday.
Skuta inked a lucrative five-year, $20.5 million deal with the Jaguars back in 2015 but was released last month after posting just 18 tackles in 13 games last season. In joining the Bears, the 31-year-old is reunited with defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who previously coached Skuta with the 49ers.
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 (elbow) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Skuta exited Sunday's loss to the Broncos prematurely due to the elbow issue but may be able to return in Week 14 against the Vikings given his participation in practice at this point in the week. If he's unable to play, however, Sean Porter or Myles Jack would be in line to start 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 more time.
Skuta (back) was a full go at Wednesday's practice.
Skuta has been dealing with injuries since late September, but it looks like he should be good to go in Week 13 against the Broncos. Look for him to resume serving as one of the Jaguars' starting outside linebackers.
Skuta (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Bills, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.
Skuta will miss his second consecutive game after suffering the back injury during practice last week. Arthur Brown and Myles Jack figure to be in line for additional reps at outside linebacker with Skuta sidelined.

Skuta injured his back during practice last week and was ultimately ruled out for Sunday's loss to the Lions. The injury still appears bothersome, so his status for Sunday's matchup against the Bills remains up in the air.
Skuta (back) is inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Lions.
Skuta injured his back during Thursday's practice and will now spend Sunday on the sidelines. Look for rookie Myles Jack to see the majority of the reps in his absence.
Skuta (back) is questionable to play Sunday against the Lions.
Skuta appears to have been injured in Thursday's practice, as he'd been a full participant Wednesday before showing up as limited Thursday and sitting out Friday's session. If he can't play, look for either Myles Jack or Arthur Brown to replace him in the starting lineup.

Skuta was unavailable to play in Week 4 but was afforded the Jaguars' bye week to heal. The time off evidently did him well, as the linebacker is projected to reclaim his starting linebacker role Sunday against the Bears.

Skuta (hip) is questionable to play in the Jaguars' Week 4 game against the Colts, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Skuta was limited in practice on Friday and will be a game-time decision according to head coach Gus Bradley. If he is ultimately ruled out, Myles Jack is a candidate to start at linebacker.
Skuta suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's game against the Ravens and is questionable to return.
Look for more details on the injury to emerge once the game concludes. In the meantime, expect Arthur Brown to fill in as the starting strongside linebacker.
Skuta was arrested and charged with first-degree misdemeanor battery earlier this month, NFL.com reports.
Skuta's arrest reportedly occurred in Orlando on June 19, and the Jaguars are aware of the situation but gathering more information at the moment. Although the impact on Skuta's availability in unknown right now, the 30-year-old is expected to battle rookie Myles Jack (knee) for a starting outside linebacker role this season.
Dan Skuta officially signed his free agent deal with the Jaguars on Wednesday. The deal was reportedly worth $20.5 million over five years.

The probables are linebacker Chris Borland (shoulder) and wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quad).
