Hurst has been promoted to the Bears' active roster, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Hurst's promotion comes on the heels of Deiondre' Hall being inactive for Week 5. Hurst will likely just be a depth option and shouldn't be expected to have a large role on defense.
The Bears announced they've reached a two-year extension with cornerback and special teams player Demontre Hurst. Hurst recorded 35 tackles and one interception in 2014. "It's a blessing to be where I started and get to be with a different set of coaches but still with the same teammates," Hurst said. "I'm just happy to be back with the guys. They pretty much helped me throughout the season last year to keep growing with them."
The Bears reached agreement on a contract extension with CB Demontre Hurst, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Hurst was an exclusive-rights free agent. The new deal will extend his contract by two years. Hurst had 40 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble for the Bears in 2014.
The Bears will have both Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall Week 12 against the Buccaneers. Both players came into the contest listed as probable, and were always expected to play. The team will also have Ego Ferguson and Josh Morgan. Both players were also listed as probable. Ferguson is getting over an illness. Morgan has a shoulder injury. Demontre Hurst , who was listed as questionable, will attempt to play through a knee injury.
Standout wideout Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are not the only probables on the injury listed submitted Friday by the Bears for their Week 12 game against Tampa Bay. Defensive tackle Ego Ferguson (illness) has also received that designation. The team has already ruled out defensive end Trevor Scott (knee), wide receiver Chris Williams (hamstring) and linebacker Darryl Sharpton (hamstring). Offensive linemen Jordan Mills (ribs)and Eben Britton (illness) are questionable, as is cornerback Demontre Hurst (knee).
