Chicago Bears Player Out For the Season After Sack Celebration Injury
Some NFL players don't belong in the sharpest knife drawer, and Lamarr Houston is apparently one of those "dull knives" after suffering a season ending knee injury while celebrating his sack of New England's back-up quarterback.
In the first place, there was very little reason for celebration on the part of Houston with his Bears trailing New England 48-23 with a little more than three minutes to play in Sunday's game. Secondly, it was just a quarterback sack. There was nothing worthy of some extreme celebration. Getting sacks is what defensive lineman are supposed to do.
Houston got to Patriots' back up quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for a sack and then striking a defiant pose, leaped into the air. When he came down, his knee buckled, and he fell to the ground. An MRI today confirmed a torn ACL, which will sideline the Bear's defensive lineman for the rest of the season.
It's the second time this season a defensive player has suffered a season-ending injury while celebrating his "great" play.
When will these guys ever learn.
