Eight days ago, the Chicago Bears allowed defensive back Deiondre' Hall to return to practice from injured reserve, thus opening his 21 day window to determine if he would be activated to the 53 man roster.
Earlier today, the Bears did the same thing with safety Quintin Demps who broke his arm way back in week three. The NFL only allows teams to bring two players off of injured reserve, so this ends any hopes you guys may have had for wide out Kevin White to get activated.
If either Hall or Demps is deemed able to play, the Bears would need to make a roster move to accommodate them on the active roster.
Demps didn’t have the best performance to open his Bears’ career, but last season the 32-year old provided leadership and six interceptions for the Houston Texans. The Bears valued his leadership in training camp, and he was voted a team captain to start the year.
If Demps can make it back, he would likely slide right back into his starting safety role, in place of the recently injured Adrian Amos, who has a bad hamstring injury.
EDIT: Here’s the deal at safety for the Bears...
