Roster Move: Bears activate Bray from practice squad


The Bears on Saturday elevated quarterback Tyler Bray from the practice squad to the active roster in advance of Sunday night's game in Green Bay.

With Mitchell Trubisky unable to play in the Bears' last two games due to a right shoulder injury, Bray served as the team's No. 2 quarterback behind Nick Foles.

Bray saw his first regular-season action in three seasons with the Bears Nov. 16 in a Monday night loss to the Vikings after Foles exited with a hip injury late in the game. Bray completed 1 of 5 passes for 18 yards—his first completion in an NFL regular-season game since entering the league in 2013 with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent from Tennessee.

With Foles listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game in Green Bay after being unable to practice all week, Bray could once again serve as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback—this time behind Trubisky, who will make his first start since Week 3 in Atlanta.

Since signing with the Bears in 2018, Bray has split time between the active roster and practice squad. He previously spent his first five NFL seasons as a backup with the Chiefs, where he worked with Bears coach Matt Nagy. Bray appeared in one regular-season game with Kansas City, failing to complete his only pass attempt in the Chiefs' 2017 season finale. He spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons on injured reserve.
