Yesterday the news broke that Chicago Bears‘ quarterback Jay Cutler was dealing with a possible season ending injury to his shoulder. Today those reports have some clarification as the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo are reporting that Cutler has a torn labrum. Rapoport tweets that Cutler is hoping a second opinion brings better news, but the Bears appear to be preparing for life without their #1 QB.

Multiple outlets have reported that the Bears have signed ex-Bear, QB David Fales, who most recently has been on the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens. The Chicago Sun Times’ Patrick Finley has confirmed that Fales is on his way to the Bears’ active roster.

With Cutler seemingly done for the remainder of the 2016 season, the Bears will have Matt Barkley and Fales as their primary QBs.

In other Chicago roster moves, they have officially announced that they re-signed CB De’Vante Bausby to their practice squad. They also added WR Dres Anderson to the practice squad while waiving WR Darius Jennings from the practice squad.

Yesterday they waived DL Jimmy Staten.
