For the second time in less than two years Lamarr Houston has suffered a torn ACL. He'll miss the remainder of the season after an MRI confirmed the injury, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
MRI confirmed a torn ACL for Bears DE Lamarr Houston, source says. Not surprising. Rough one for Houston, who had an ACL in '14 too.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 20, 2016
Houston suffered the injury in the second half of Monday night's loss to the Eagles. Houston landed awkwardly on his left leg while attempting to pass rush and crumbled to the ground. He walked off under his own power but did not return to the game. He finished with four tackles.
Houston infamously suffered a torn ACL while celebrating a sack against the Patriots in 2014.
He was one of a handful of Bears who suffered injuries in the Week 2 loss. Jay Cutler is dealing with a sprained right thumb, Danny Trevathan will need surgery on a thumb injury of his own, and Eddie Goldman is dealing with an ankle injury.
It's an unfortunate scenario for a Bears team who, sitting at 2-0, travels to Dallas to face the Cowboys on a short week.
