Linebacker Jonathan Anderson has been re-signed and will join the team’s practice squad. This move was expected after Anderson was released in order to make room for Dontrelle Inman on the active roster. Anderson had been with the active roster since Week 2 when he replaced Jerrell Freeman, who was placed on injured reserve with an injured pectoral muscle.
To make room on the practice squad, linebacker Carl Bradford was released.
The team also announced defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris did not travel with the team to New Orleans, which means he will not play against the Saints. Robertson-Harris was on the injury report all week and did not practice because of a hamstring injury, which was sustained while covering a kick in the team’s Week 7 win against the Carolina Panthers.
Chicago has received strong play from its defensive line, especially in recent weeks. However, they won’t likely miss a beat without Robertson-Harris, whose contributions were coming as a special teams performer.
