Bears' Buster Skrine (concussion) ruled out of Week 14's game against Texans

Chicago Bears defensive back Buster Skrine (concussion) has been ruled out of Week 14's game against the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Skrine has been a consistent starter for Chicago all season, recording at least 40 snaps in all of the Bears' games to this point. 506 of his 636 snaps have come in the slot, where he was scheduled to match up against Houston's Keke Coutee this week. His absence will be primarily felt in the run game, where he has graded out as Pro Football Focus' second-best corner in the league this season. In coverage, he has been average at best, grading out at 167th.

The Bears are 1.5-point underdogs against the Texans in Week 14. Their implied team total of 22.0 points is the eighth-lowest team total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
