With a injuries and COVID issues mounting up, along with the 2-game suspension for wide receiver Javon Wims, the Chicago Bears made several roster moves today from their practice squad to ensure a full roster for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

They promoted quarterback Tyler Bray and defensive lineman Daniel McCullers to the active roster as COVID replacements. They also promoted offensive linemen Dieter Eiselen and Badara Traore, and they signed return specialist Dwayne Harris to the active roster.

  • Bray will serve as the back up to Nick Foles on Sunday with Mitchell Trubisky nursing a sore shoulder.
  • McCullers will provide some extra size with nose tackle John Jenkins ruled out.
  • Undrafted free agent o-linemen, Eisleln and Traore, were needed for depth, as the only other reserve that would have been available tomorrow was rookie Lachavious Simmons.
  • Harris will be the primary punt returner just like last week.

This brings the Bears gameday roster up to 55-players, which is the maximum allowed by the CBA.

EDIT: On Saturday night the Bears placed Deon Bush on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. The deadline to fill his roster spot is 10:30 a.m. Central.
