The Chicago Bears made a few roster moves the last couple of days that affected their practice squad and the bottom of their active roster.

On Wednesday the Bears waived outside linebacker Sam Kamara from their 53-man roster, which leaves them at 52 active players. They also released running back Chris Thompson from their practice squad and signed outside linebacker Cassius Marsh to the practice squad. The 29-year old Marsh (6’4”, 254) was originally a 4th round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, and the Bears are his eighth professional team. He has started 9 of the 93 games he’s appeared in, but he has extensive special teams experience.

The Bears also announced the four practice squad players they were protecting this week and they are running back Artavis Pierce, defensive lineman Margus Hunt, outside linebacker Charles Snowden, and the aforementioned Marsh.

On Tuesday they signed defensive tackle LaCale London to their practice squad and released offensive lineman Dareuan Parker from the practice squad. The Bears waived London with an injury settlement two months ago, but his elbow is apparently all healed up now.

And in case you missed it, on Monday they activated tight end Jimmy Graham from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
