ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Chicago Bears “fear the worst” for DE Lamarr Houston, who will undergo an MRI on his knee Monday.
- Ian Rapoport adds that Houston is preparing for a possible season-ending injury.
Houston injured himself while celebrating a sack late into Sunday’s blowout loss to the Patriots. The injury was very similar to the season-ending knee injury Lions LB Stephen Tulloch suffered while celebrating a sack of Aaron Rodgers a few weeks ago.
Should Houston’s season be over, it would be a terrible loss for an already disappointing Bears defense.
Houston, 27, signed a five-year, $35 million contract that includes $15 million guaranteed with the Bears back in March. He’s under team control through the 2018 season.
Coming into today, Houston had recorded seven tackles, one fumble recovery and a pass defense over the course of seven games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 13 defensive end in a 4-3 defense.
