Bears Sign QB to Practice Squad, Activate 2 Players
The Bears signed QB Kyle Sloter to their practice squad in addition to activating DB Michael Joseph and OL Jason Spriggs on Monday.
The Chicago Bears made a number of roster moves on Monday afternoon. Looking to add quarterback depth, the team signed Kyle Sloter to the practice squad ahead of their Week 10 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
This move will most likely be a temporary signing, as QB Mitchell Trubisky was not placed on IR but may still be out for a couple more weeks. As the Bears’ struggles at the QB position continue, perhaps Sloter could impress enough to become a more permanent name on the roster.
As of right now, Sloter will join the practice squad. It’s an intriguing signing because he is only 26 years old and may be more worthwhile on the active roster as QB2 instead of Tyler Bray.
Beyond the new addition to the quarterback room, the Bears also activated a pair of players from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and injured reserve.
Offensive lineman Jason Spriggs returns from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and defensive back Michael Joseph has been activated from injured reserve.
