The Chicago Bears announced today that the team has officially placed QB Jay Cutler and RB Matt Forte on Injured Reserve. While this isn't surprising, it does free up two of the 53-man roster spots (Roster update provided at end of article).

Cutler and Forte join an IR already comprised of:

- Kyle Adams

- Gabe Carimi

- Chris Conte

- Johnny Knox

- Patrick Mannelly

- J.T. Thomas

- Anthony Walters

- Chris Williams

---------------------------------------------

No word yet on whether the Bears plans to promote anyone from the Practice Team, but if I were a betting man, I'd say it was just a matter of time. Stay tuned...

UPDATE: The Bears have filled the two open positions... DT Jordan Miller has been promoted from the PS, and OG Masfield Wrotto (formerly of the Seahawks and Bills) has been signed to the active roster. Think Tim Ruskell had anything to do with that one?
