Many of the moves had been announced on Sunday, but the Bears officially announced their whole practice squad today.

The Chicago Bears announced their 10-man practice squad on Monday morning. The players who were added are as follows:

  • Offensive lineman Dejon Allen
  • Defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson
  • Quarterback Tyler Bray
  • Wide receiver Tanner Gentry
  • Cornerback Michael Joseph
  • Cornerback Jonathon Mincy
  • Running back Taquan Mizzell
  • Running back Ryan Nall
  • Offensive lineman James Stone
  • Linebacker Josh Woods

Only one of the players on the practice squad was not on the Bears throughout the off-season: James Stone. He was released by the Oakland Raiders on Saturday after spending most of 2017 on the team’s practice squad. An undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2014, Stone’s most memorable season came in his rookie year, when he played in 12 games and started nine as a member of the Atlanta Falcons.

Among those whom the Bears waived and chose not to add to their practice squad are Cavon Walker, Rashard Fant and 2017 fifth-round pick Jordan Morgan. Morgan’s absence is especially surprising, given that he was a draft pick just one year ago.
