Bears Add QB Tyler Bray to Active Roster

After keeping him inactive for the first three weeks of the season, the Chicago Bears have promoted QB Tyler Bray from the practice squad to the active roster.

The Chicago Bears promoted QB Tyler Bray to the active roster from the practice squad on Saturday.

Bray was already protected from being poached off the practice squad by another team, so the news of the promotion is a bit surprising.

Possible reasons for the promotion could possibly include an injury or a COVID-19 related situation going on with one of the quarterbacks. However, neither Foles nor Trubisky were designated on those lists for week four.

The timing of Bray’s promotion is certainly intriguing. He has been inactive for the past three weeks while Trubisky was the starter and Foles backed him up.

Now Foles is the starter and Trubisky is the backup, but suddenly the Bears bring Bray into the mix. If an injury was the concern, Bray likely would have been activated earlier.

Could there be something larger brewing behind the scenes at Halas Hall with the Trubisky situation? Might there be a lack of confidence in #10? It’s purely speculatory, but perhaps bridges have been burned after offensive coordinator Bill Lazor — not head coach Matt Nagy — delivered the news of the week three benching to Trubisky.

Keep in mind that Bray was with Matt Nagy in Kansas City from 2013 to 2017 and the two have been together in Chicago since 2018.

The team has not commented any further on the matter, so for now, it’s all speculation. Hopefully there will be some answers tomorrow.
