Veteran linebacker Lamarr Houston rejoins Bears

Veteran linebacker Lamarr Houston rejoins Bears”

The 30-year-old Houston played in five games for the Texans after being released by Chicago on September 6.

On Tuesday, Houston was released by the Texans, although reports from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and others indicated that the move wasn't made because of poor play.

Houston signed with the Texans Oct. 11 after defensive end J.J. Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus suffered season-ending injuries. The 30-year-old had one shining moment, scooping and scoring on a fumble recovery in the Week 9 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Lamarr Houston is going back to Chicago.

During his first go-round with the Bears, Houston registered nine sacks and picked up 46 tackles.

Houston tore his ACL midway through his first season with the Bears in 2014 and rebounded to compile a team-leading and career-high eight sacks in 2015.

The Bears defense has been a middle-of-the-pack unit this season, but allowed the most points of the year last week in a 31-3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

That's because the Bears claimed Houston on waivers from the Houston Texans on Wednesday, the team announced.
