The Bears signed linebacker Darryl Shaprton Thursday. To clear a roster spot, the team termined the contract of fullback Tony Fiammetta after reaching an injury settlement.
Bears fullback Tony Fiammetta suffered a hamstring injury in the second quarter against the Jets and won't return.
The Bears re-signed fullback Tony Fiammetta to the 53-man roster and added rookie quarterback David Fales to the practice squad, reports ESPN.com.
The Bears have waived quarterback David Fales and released cornerback Kelvin Hayden and fullback Tony Fiammetta, ESPNChicago.com reports. The team is dealing with multiple injuries to starters on the offensive line and at wide receiver, necessitating the roster juggling in advance of Week 2's matchup with the 49ers. Fales (shoulder) and Fiammetta (hamstring) had already been ruled out for Sunday's game. The team will likely send Fales to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
The Bears have ruled out three players prior to their Week 2 matchup against the 49ers. Offensive linemen Roberto Garza and Matt Slauson will not go against San Francisco. Fullback Tony Fiammetta will also be sidelined. All three players missed the entire week of practice due to their injuries.
