Chicago Bears cut Fales, Hayden, Fiametta, will add others for Sunday Night Football

The Chicago Bears have released several players in advance of Sunday Night Football against the 49ers, as they need to fill some depth due to injuries.

The Bears are making some Friday moves:

Already on their way to San Francisco, the players are on the plane.

Moves were likely as the status of Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall has been in question with them not playing all week, not to mention Joshua Morgan, Roberto Garza, and Matt Slauson.

The Bears technically have until Saturday to activate people, but the likelihood is that the three players are:

Josh Bellamy, WR

Chris Williams, WR

Taylor Boggs, OL

This would make sense, as it bolsters the depth chart a bit for a long road trip. Williams is able to handle kicks and punts, and Bellamy has some flashes.  Boggs will allow the team to have a backup to C Brian De La Puente.

This was similar to what happened with Matt Blanchard.
