The official roster is set, now see who makes the Chicago Bears practice squad

The Chicago Bears announced who would be on their 53-man roster yesterday by making necessary cuts before the deadline. A few surprises seem to have come down the pipeline. Most notably Kevin Toliver who many believed was in the running to start opposite of Kyle Fuller.

My best guess is that the team will likely be bringing in a veteran who may have been a roster-cut casualty from another team yesterday or the team might even consider bringing back Prince Amukamara on a cheap, one-year deal. Whoever is brought in will likely be a placeholder for rookie Jaylon Johnson who is being eased back from his shoulder surgery over the offseason.

Another notable move by the Chicago Bears was officially listing Cordarrelle Patterson as a running back. We all saw this coming based on the fact he had been working with the running back group all training camp, but this also meant the team had no room for Artavis Pierce, an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State who was having a solid camp. Many thought Pierce would make the final roster, but he was cut with the thought of being placed on the practice squad.

Speaking of the practice squad, there have been some changes made this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of only 12 players, the team will be allowed 16 players this year. Six of those players can have an unlimited amount of years of experience in the NFL. We will keep this updated as best we can as news comes in. Just realize the process will be fluid just as the 53-man roster will likely change over the next few days as teams claim players who were cut yesterday.

Note regarding Kevin Toliver: Reports are (unofficial) that Toliver will not be signed to the practice squad per Brad Biggs
