Roster Move: Bears elevate Newsome from practice squad


The Bears on Saturday promoted rookie receiver Dazz Newsome from the practice squad to the active roster in advance of Sunday's season finale in Minnesota.

The sixth-round pick from North Carolina spent most of the season on the practice squad before making his NFL debut Dec. 20 in a loss to the Vikings at Soldier Field. 

A week later, Newsome caught one pass for 10 yards and returned a punt 28 yards to set up a touchdown in a 25-24 comeback win over the Seahawks in Seattle. 

He may get more opportunities on both offense and special teams Sunday, given that receiver/return specialist Jakeem Grant Sr. was placed on injured reserve this week.
