The Chicago Bears announced on Monday afternoon that they have re-signed outside linebacker Ledarius Mack to their practice squad. Mack takes the place of defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson whom the Bears waived.

Ledarius, who as we all know is the younger brother of Khalil, was released when the Bears cut their roster down from 80 players to the mandated 53.

He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent from Buffalo, and with his size (6’1”, 240) there was speculation that he would transition from an edge rusher to an inside linebacker, but the Bears announced his re-acquisition as an outside linebacker.

Here are the 15 men* currently on the Bears 16-man practice squad.

  1. Xavier Crawford, DB
  2. Stephen Denmark, DB
  3. LaCale London, DL
  4. Ledarius Mack, OLB
  5. Rashad Smith, ILB
  6. Sam Mustipher, OL
  7. Lachavious Simmons, OL
  8. Badara Traore, OL
  9. Jamon Brown, OL
  10. Rodney Adams, WR
  11. Reggie Davis, WR
  12. Thomas Ives, WR
  13. Tyler Bray, QB
  14. Artavis Pierce, RB
  15. Jesper Horsted, TE

* Kicker Cairo Santos was promoted to the active roster before Sunday’s game in Detroit so the Bears have an opening on the practice squad.
