Earlier today the Bears elevated safety Demontre Hurst from their practice squad to fill the 53rd and final spot on the active roster. Hurst was the primary nickleback last year, but this offseason he was transitioning to safety and that's where the Bears now list him.
Taking Hurst's spot on the practice squad is guard/center Ryan Seymour, who was most recently with the Cleveland Browns. Seymour was originally a 7th round draft pick by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2013 NFL Draft. At Vanderbilt Seymour played both guard and tackle, but last year for the Browns he had 3 starts at center.
Seymour joins fellow center Barrett Jones on the practice squad, as the Bears scramble in the wake of starting center Will Montgomery going on season ending injured reserve.
Left guard Matt Slauson was the center against the Raiders last Sunday and the Bears have rookie center Hroniss Grasu on the active roster.
In other Bears news, kicker Robbie Gould won the NFC Special Teams player of the week after going 3 for 3 in field goals, including the game winner. This is Gould's 3rd win in his career.
