The Chicago Bears are practicing today at Halas Hall to prepare for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, and they’ll be doing so with another tweak to their roster.

Moments ago, they announced that they have re-signed defensive lineman John Jenkins and placed defensive back Deiondre’ Hall on injured reserve.

At a listed 6’3”, 327 pounds, the 28-year old Jenkins is a legitimate back up at the nose tackle position. Starting nose tackle Eddie Goldman was recently placed in the concussion protocol, so bringing Jenkins back made sense. We’ll find out more on Goldman’s stats this week.

Jenkins had seven tackles this preseason for the Bears, and in his four year career he has racked up 113 tackles.

Hall, 23-years old, played corner last year before being moved back to safety this off season. He was a fourth round pick in the 2016 draft.

These roster moves brings the Bears’ defensive line count up to six, where they will likely stay, and it drops safety down to four.
