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.
David Fales was cut by the Chicago 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.
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.
