After waiving safety Demontre Hurst on Monday, it was expected that the Chicago Bears would bring him back to their practice squad once he cleared waivers. So today's news of him being re-signed to the practice squad shouldn't be surprising.
Hurst has played in 18 games, with two starts over the last two seasons (2014-15) with the Bears. During that time he picked up 36 defensive tackles, one interception and one forced fumble while adding nine special teams tackles. He spent the 2013 season on the Bears practice squad as an undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma.
In other defensive back news for the Bears, the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reported yesterday that they had a few guys in on a tryout basis. Chicago looked at corners Ri'Shard Anderson, Robert McClain and Pierre Warren, and safety Brandian Ross.
Earlier this week the Bears elevated cornerback Bryce Callahan from the practice squad, so the coaches could be looking to shake up their secondary.
