It really is one of the bad things about the NFL, cut day. Something as simple as an ankle injury can sideline your career.
Not more than two days ago Brandon Rideau was in the hunt for a receiver spot with the Bears battling Mike Hass, now he is off the team. Cut to make roster requirements.
Another guy cut, Leon Joe. Joe has actually been with the team as a back up linebacker for a few years, but with Jamar Williams coming into his own and the drafting of Okwo, Joe became expendable.
Others cut were defensive tackle Justin Frick, receivers Timon Marshall and Clinton Solomon, guard Tyler McMeans, safety Jay Staggs, kicker Nick Novak and punter Joel Stelly.
