Watford was released by the Bears on Sunday.
Watford signed with the Bears in April after spending his first five seasons with the Cardinals. He'll now return to the free-agent market and could be a serviceable pickup for other teams in need of depth along the offensive line.
Watford will give the Bears' offensive line depth after spending his first five seasons with the Cardinals, which included 21 starts in 43 appearances. Watford will be in the mix for the starting left guard position and can fill in for Kyle Long (shoulder, neck, elbow), who is recovering from three surgeries this offseason.
Watford (ankle) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Watford has been sidelined for the previous two games while nursing the injury. He logged consecutive limited practices to end the week, so he is looking like a true game-time decision Sunday.
Watford (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Watford will now miss his second consecutive game due to a high-ankle sprain, while a potential Week 17 return against the Seahawks is no guarantee. Evan Boehm will likely start at right guard in Watford's place.
