Iyiegbuniwe had nine solo tackles in 16 games during the 2018 season. Iyiegbuniwe played only 23 defensive snaps all season as he was largely limited to a role on special teams. The 2018 fourth-round pick will enter his first full offseason in the NFL and look to make an impression in Chicago.
Iyiegbuniwe (shoulder) made two tackles -- one for a loss -- during Saturday's 27-20 preseason win over the Chiefs. Iyiegbuniwe, whom the Bears picked in the fourth round of April's draft, won't see many defensive snaps behind Danny Trevathan and rookie first-round pick Roquan Smith (hamstring). However, he showed he could be a disruptive force and will likely make the 53-man roster.
Iyiegbuniwe (shoulder) was a limited participant in Sunday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Iyiegbuniwe missed more than a week of practice due to an unspecified shoulder injury, but his return to the field Sunday is a step in the right direction. The fourth-round rookie is competing for a depth role at inside linebacker this summer.
