Just a couple of days after cutting them as part of maximizing roster flexibility ahead of the
game epic victory against the San Francisco 49ers, the Chicago Bears brought fullback Tony Fiammetta and sixth-round rookie QB David Fales back to the team.
Fiammetta, who had been inactive with a hamstring issue since late in training camp, replaces Charles Tillman on the 53-man roster. Tillman, of course, has been placed on season-ending injured reserve with a recurrence of the torn triceps that ended his 2013 season. Read more in Sam Householder's breaking news article here.
Fales, who's been out with a shoulder injury suffered in the preseason finale against the Cleveland Browns, somehow cleared waivers and has been added to the team's practice squad. According to beat reporter Adam Hoge, there are two more spots free on the practice squad. Hoge also makes the point that:
Expect more roster moves. #Bears still only have 2 healthy CBs. MNF game gives them time though. First game week practice not till Thurs.— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) September 15, 2014
