  Bears | Thursday practice report for Chicago    Thu Sep 22, 11:08 PM

Chicago Bears DL Lamarr Houston (knee) underwent an MRI exam that confirmed he has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Houston is the most exciting piece of this defensive line, though if Allen continues to play at the level he has the last few years, this front four is frightening.
