Chicago Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston was hit with a bad case of instant karma on Sunday after celebrating a sack while his team was down by 25 points.
After bringing down New England Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, Houston leaped in the air to celebrate, but landed awkwardly. Houston was eventually carted off the field with a knee injury. To make matters even worse, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Bears "fear the worst" regarding Houston's injury.
Apparently, Houston didn't learn from the misfortunes of Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch, who tore his ACL earlier this season while celebrating a sack.
Following Chicago's 51-23 loss, Houston expressed some regret over his celebration.
"I probably shouldn't have celebrated while they were blowing us out, but it happens," Houston said, via ESPN.com.
UPDATE: Just like Tulloch, Houston tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
MRI confirms Bears DE Lamarr Houston tore his ACL yesterday. Unfortunate injury for sure.
