Newsome was waived by the Bears on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The rookie sixth-round pick apparently didn't show enough over the past few months to warrant a spot on Chicago's initial 53-man roster. The Bears hope to bring back Newsome via the practice squad, but he'll first need to pass through waivers unclaimed.
Newsome (collarbone) will be removed from the PUP list for a limited practice Monday, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The rookie sixth-round pick will get back on the field exactly two months after his initial injury, falling right in line with the recovery timeline. Newsome should have plenty of time to prepare for Week 1, but that doesn't mean he'll earn a significant role, or even a roster spot. He'll still have his work cut out for him.
Newsome (collarbone) was placed on the preseason PUP list Sunday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. The rookie sixth-round pick was ruled out for two months after suffering a broken collarbone in early June, so it's not much of a surprise he'll open camp on the PUP list. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, Newsome should be healthy sometime in early-to-mid August as he attempts to secure a spot on the season-opening roster.
