Shaw (hamstring) was waived off injured reserve Friday after he and the Bears came to an agreement on an injury settlement, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Shaw was never expected to make the team's final roster, as both Mike Glennon and rookie Mitchell Trubisky were essentially locks to make the cut. The 25-year-old would have had to spend the year on IR if he and the team could not reach a settlement, but he's now free to find a new opportunity when he returns to full health.
Shaw (hamstring) was waived/injured by the Bears on Saturday.
With the expensive Mike Glennon and the 2017 second-overall pick, Mitchell Trubisky, already locked into the depth chart, it's no surprise that Shaw was the odd man out. Shaw hasn't played a regular season snap since 2014, so expect him to end up on a practice squad.
Shaw cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and returned to Thursday's exhibition against the Browns, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Shaw briefly exited in the fourth quarter while he was evaluated for a head injury, allowing rookie Mitchell Trubisky to see a little extra game action. Shaw should be fine moving forward now that he's passed all tests.
Shaw exited Thursday's preseason game to be evaluated for a concussion, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Shaw will need to clear concussion protocol in order to return to the field.
