The Bears have signed tight end Bradley Sowell to the 53-man roster, the team announced on Tuesday. The move comes one day after Chicago waived defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson, who was just added back to Chicago’s practice squad today.

It has been a wild week and a half for Sowell, who has been waived twice and signed twice since last Sunday. The former offensive tackle has seen his roster status affected greatly by injuries and the need to promote players from the practice squad.

Sowell saw action in the first two games of the season, playing 11 offensive snaps and 12 special teams snaps. He has yet to record a reception on the year and has served primarily as a blocking tight end, but he has not played since the Bears signed fellow tight end J.P. Holtz for a similar role.

Anderson played on just over 35 percent of the Bears’ defensive snaps in Week 3 against Washington, and he also took reps this past week against the Vikings.
