Shea McClellin injury: Bears rookie out with concussion

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Bears defensive end Shea McClellin suffered a concussion on Sunday night.

Chicago Bears rookie defensive end Shea McClellin is is out for the rest of the team's Sunday night tilt with the Houston Texans as he has suffered a concussion. McClellin left the game with an apparent head injury and was evaluated on the sideline for concussion symptoms shortly thereafter.

McClellin has been effective as a rush end in his first year out of Boise State. He has tallied 2.5 sacks so far this season, but the Bears will be without his services as they battle the top team out of the AFC. Houston has a high-powered offense that will test Chicago's stout defense.

The Texans and Bears both came into their match-up with just one loss on the season. Houston jumped out to the early lead, as Shayne Graham converted a 20-yard field goal with 8:13 to go in the first. Those are the only points so far as the opening quarter winds down.
