The Bears defense took several injury hits on Monday night.
Linebacker Lamarr Houston will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL for the second time in the last three years, linebacker Danny Trevathan is having thumb surgery and two defensive backs are in the concussion protocol. On top of that, they’ll reportedly be without defensive tackle Eddie Goldman for the next month.
Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports that Goldman is expected to miss four weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain against the Eagles. The hope is that he’s back for the Thursday night game against the Packers on October 20.
Goldman started 12 games as a rookie in 2015 and had 22 tackles and 4.5 sacks and had a good game against the Texans in the opener, so he’d be missed up front under any circumstances. Given all of the other injury issues on defense in Chicago, his absence will be all the more painful.
