Acho returns to the team just two days after his contract was terminated. The five-year veteran has been unable to practice the past two weeks due to an undisclosed illness. He originally signed with the Bears April 1 after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.  

Washington exited Sunday's season-opening loss to the Green Bay Packers with a quad injury. The 6-4, 265-pounder has appeared in 16 games over three seasons since being selected by the Bears in the sixth round of the 2013 draft out of Georgia.
