The Bears have released several players, including veteran blocking tight end Jeron Mastrud. Mastrud caught six passes last season for Oakland. Also let go by Chicago are running back Jordan Lynch, wideout Armanti Edwards, tackle Dennis Roland and offensive lineman Robert Turner .
The Bears signed Jeron Mastrud, a blocking tight end who caught six passes for 88 yards with Oakland last season.
The Raiders got several minor contributions in their Week 16 loss at San Diego. Taiwan Jones carried twice for 1 yard, wideout Denarius Moore caught three passes for 17 yards and tight end Jeron Mastrud hauled in a 12-yard pass. Receiver Rod Streater could not hang on to a 39-yard touchdown catch -- the play was upheld on review -- and finished with one 2-yard reception on five targets. They'll all play the Broncos in Week 17.
Several Raiders who were on the injury report are active at San Diego, including safety Charles Woodson (ribs), linebacker Miles Burris (ankle), tight end Jeron Mastrud (wrist), linebacker Sio Moore (illness), guard Lucas Nix (illness) and defensive tackle Vance Walker (concussion). All were listed as probable except for Burris and Walker, who were questionable.
The Raiders have eight players on their Friday injury report, but five are probable. The lone exceptions are running back Jeremy Stewart (ankle/knee), who is out Sunday against San Diego, linebacker Miles Burris (ankle) and defensive tackle Vance Walker (concussion) who are questionable. The probables include running back Darren McFadden (knee/ankle), who should return after missing the last three games, tight end Jeron Mastrud (wrist), linebacker Sio Moore (illness), guard Lucas Nix (illness) and free safety Charles Woodson (ribs).
