Fales was promoted from the Bears' practice squad to the active roster on Monday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports. Fales was promoted to the active roster earlier this season when Jay Cutler was injured. This time around, Fales' activation is the result of his team's decision to move on from backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Though highly unproven, Fales probably can't be any worse than his former teammate.
Quarterback David Fales was cut by the Bears on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Fales was activated from the team's practice squad back in September when Jay Cutler was dealing with a hamstring injury. Never considered more than an emergency insurance player, Fales will try his luck elsewhere before potentially landing on a practice squad.
The Bears activated quarterback David Fales from the practice squad Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Jay Cutler's upcoming absence due to a hamstring injury has precipitated Fales' addition to the active roster. Fales will serve as Jimmy Clausen's backup, but if the 2014 sixth-round pick takes the field, it would mark the first snap of Fales' brief career.
Quarterback David Fales was released by the Bears on Tuesday. The Bears decided they were comfortable with two quarterbacks on the roster for the time being, and decided to give Fales his release. He will be a candidate for the team's practice squad if he does not sign elsewhere.
Four injured or ailing Bears have been ruled out for the Sunday game against Detroit, including placekicker Robbie Gould (quad). The others are guard Kyle Long (hip), defensive tackle Will Sutton (illness) and safety Chris Conte (back). Quarterback David Fales, cornerback Terrance Mitchell and defensive end Trevor Scott are all healthy scratches.
