The Bears have issues at the moment beyond their quarterback’s thumb.
According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, an MRI confirmed that Bears outside linebacker Lamarr Houston suffered a torn ACL in last night’s loss to the Eagles.
The Bears seemed to be expecting the worst, and it hits at a terrible time for them. They’re still waiting for Pernell McPhee to come off the physically unable to perform list after his knee surgery.
Houston also tore his ACL in 2014, when he was celebrating a sack. This time, there’s not a lot to celebrate, for him or the team, as they try to figure out how long Jay Cutler could be out with a thumb injury.
