    CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears?linebacker Lamarr Houston?was ruled out of the second half of Monday nights 29-14 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles?with a knee injury that coach John Fox said seems to be substantial.Houston clutched his left knee after he fell to the turf on a rush attempt at the 5:14 mark of the second quarter. The seventh-year NFL veteran stayed on the field for several minutes but eventually walked to the sideline accompanied by the Bears medical team.Also in Monday nights game, Bears safety Adrian Amos and nickel back Bryce Callahan were both ruled out with concussions in the third quarter, and starting nose tackle Eddie Goldman was carted off the field with an ankle injury early in the fourth.Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler walked to the locker room with a right thumb injury in the third quarter and did not return, safety Chris Prosinski injured his right calf and running back KaDeem Carey strained a hamstring.Houston, who led the Bears with eight sacks last year, tore his ACL celebrating a meaningless sack of Jimmy Garoppolo late in Chicagos 51-23 blowout loss in New England in October 2014. J. C. Ramirez Angels Jersey . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Jonathan Lucroy Angels Jersey . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Justin Bour Jersey . The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. Reggie Jackson Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Jaylen Barford was accustomed to pretty much scoring at will a season ago in junior college when he led the nation with an average of 26.2 points per game.The junior guard is starting to look right at home in his first season at Arkansas, scoring a career-best 17 points in helping the Razorbacks (3-0) rally for a 71-67 win over Texas-Arlington on Friday night.Barford added six rebounds, but it was his three second-half steals -- two of which ended with dunks -- that sparked a 20-2 run to open the second half by Arkansas. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 9.5 points in his first two games for the Razorbacks, but Friday was nothing short of his coming-out party.I know my team needed me, Barford said. In the first two games, it probably looked like I was very bad, but I think Im getting comfortable and acclimated to the team. Im just having fun and playing free.Anton Beard added 12 points off the bench and Dusty Hannahs added 11 for Arkansas, which shot 50 percent (12 of 24) in the second half after a disappointing 9-of-29 effort (31 percent) in the first half.Erick Neal had 15 points to lead the Mavericks (1-3), who have now lost three straight games after leading at halftime. Drew Charles also finished in double figures with 11 for Texas-Arlington, while Jalen Jones had 10.The Mavericks committed 12 of their 18 turnovers in the second half, and they hit only 8 of 28 shots (28.6 percent) in the second half.They did a great job of creating some steals in the halfcourt, Texas-Arlington coach Scott Cross said. ... Theyre a good basketball team, and our guys hung with them for 40 minutes.After a pair of convincing wins to open the season, Arkansas appeared anything but convincing in the first half against the preseason pick to win the Sun Belt Conference.The Mavericks, after back-to-back losses at Minnesota and Florida Gulf Coast, led the Razorbacks by as many as 17 points in the first half before settling for a 43-32 edge at halftime. Texas-Arlington hit 8 of its 15 3-point attempts in the half, with Charles connecting on all three of his shots from behind the arc.ddddddddddddArkansas, meanwhile, hit just 5 of its first 21 shots and finished 9 of 29 (31 percent) in the half.The Razorbacks used their fast second-half start to build a 52-45 lead midway through the second half, with Barford scoring three times after steals and Beard capping the run with back-to-back 3-pointers.Arkansas led 69-67 in the final minute when Barford was fouled. The junior make both free throws to put the Razorbacks up 71-67, and they kept Texas-Arlington from scoring on the other end as time expired.I think eventually he will (be a leading man), Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said about Barford. I think you kind of saw him take command out on the floor ... I think hes a guy who can facilitate and make plays, whether it be for himself or for others.BIG PICTUREOn a night when Southeastern Conference preseason Player of the Year Moses Kingsley struggled with foul trouble and had only five points, Arkansas might have found the co-leading man it was looking for -- on both ends of the court -- in Barford. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 26.2 points per game in junior college last season, but his defensive activity is what the Razorbacks desperately needed.BEARD IS BACKAfter missing the first semester last season and following his arrest on forgery charges and struggling when he returned, Beard appears to have regained the form that made him an All-SEC freshman performer two seasons ago. The junior finished with 12 points off the bench for the second time in three games, and he hit several shots with the shot clock winding down to help Arkansas rally for the win on Friday.UP NEXTAfter a three-game road trip, Texas-Arlington returns home to host St. Francis on Monday night.The Razorbacks play their first road game of the season at Minnesota on Tuesday night.---More AP college basketball: ' ' '
