It looks like the Chicago Bears are getting the old band back together.
A day after claiming Lamarr Houston off of waivers, the Bears have signed safety Chris Prosinski (per his agent). Both new additions have been prompted due to some injuries to the Bears, but while Houston could see significant time on defense, I would imagine Prosinski is more for special teams depth.
The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs is reporting that starting safety Adrian Amos could miss “significant” time with a hamstring injury, which could push Deon Bush into a starting role.
Back-up safety/special teamer DeAndre Houston-Carson is also dealing with an ankle injury, so Prosinski could fill his role in the third phase.
The Bears will need to make a corresponding roster move once this signing is official, and if Amos’ hammy injury is that severe, he could be placed on injured reserve.
Once the Bears makes the moves official we’ll update the story.
