The Patriots have traded Bostic to the Lions in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2017, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Bostic ended up being the odd man out after New England signed Shea McClellin and then drafted Kamu Grugier-Hill and Elandon Roberts. He'll bolster the Lions' depth at linebacker, with his capabilities well-understood by GM Bob Quinn, formerly the Patriots director of pro personnel.
Bears linebacker Jon Bostic (ankle) was dealt to the Patriots on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Bostic missed the first three games of the season due to a high-ankle sprain, but with the Bears going winless in those outings, the organization decided to jettison both Bostic and Jared Allen (to Carolina). In New England, expect Bostic to serve in a reserve role to starting middle linebacker Jerod Mayo.
An ankle injury has cost Bears linebacker Jon Bostic participation in the game Sunday against Arizona, per Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times. Bostic sustained the injury toward the end of August and hasn't been able to recover enough to get on the field - he's now slated to miss back-to-back games. With Christian Jones locking down the inside linebacker position, Bostic will have a tough time gaining IDP relevance when he returns healthy.
Bears coach John Fox said Thursday he expects linebacker Jon Bostic to be ready for training camp, reports the Chicago Tribune. Bostic is dealing with a back injury, which has prevented him from practicing with the team.
The Bears have listed LB Lance Briggs, LB Jon Bostic, OL Jordan Mills, S Danny McCray, CB Terrance Mitchell, DB Ahmad Dixon and OL Charles Leno, Jr. as inactive Week 8 against the Patriots. The Bears will be without a couple notable defensive players. Both Briggs and Bostic will need more time to recover, leaving the team thin at linebacker. Jordan Mills will also miss the contest, hurting the offensive line.
