Before Sunday’s matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, the Chciago Bears promoted Rodney Adams and Bruce Irvin to the active roster. The team also made Teven Jenkins’ activation official today. He will likely play a limited amount of snaps and it’s not completely clear where, but he will get his first NFL reps nonetheless.
The Bears signed pass rusher Bruce Irvin several weeks ago after learning Khalil Mack would miss the rest of the season. He’s 34 years old, but the Bears need all the help they can get on defense at this point. Akiem Hicks is out for the game against the Cardinals as well, so Irvin will likely see quite a few snaps.
Rodney Adams was the uncrowned king of the preseason and many fans thought he was going to solidify a spot on this roster. He went through a series of transactions before finally signing on with the practice squad.
The Bears have less than 24 hours to prepare for the Cardinals. Promoting Rodney Adams and Bruce Irvin became necessary for depth as they are still dealing with a plethora of injuries. Allen Robinson is doubtful to play against Arizona, so Adams will likely see a fair share of targets after Darnell Mooney.
