On Saturday, the Chicago Bears put starting center Lucas Patrick on injured reserve after injuring his calf in the Falcons game. On Friday's injury report for the Green Bay Packers game, he was one of five Bears listed as questionable, but his season is now over.

The 30-year-old Patrick, who will be a 2024 free agent, started 15 of the 16 games he played in this season, and 20 of 23 in his two-year Bears career.

The Bears could turn to Doug Feeney or Cody Whitehair to fill in at center for the season finale.

To take Patrick’s spot on the active roster, the Bears signed cornerback Greg Stroman Jr. off their practice squad. Stroman started one of the seven games he played this season, and he has 19 tackles, one interception, and a sack.

They also flexed center Doug Kramer and cornerback Christian Matthew from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game.

The Packers also made some moves earlier today.
