Chicago Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston’s season may have come to an end after a celebration went wrong.

Houston sacked Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the fourth quarter of a blowout loss on Sunday. He then went down with a knee injury after the sack which occurred when the Bears were down by 25 points.

There has not been a lot of celebration for Houston or the Bears following his $35 million contract. The sack was his first (and probably last) of the season while the Bears fell to 3-5 with the loss.

If this story seems familiar its because Stephen Tulloch of the Lions suffered a similarly embarrassing injury celebrating a sack on Aaron Rodgers in mid-September.
