The Bears on Friday activated nose tackle Eddie Goldman from the reserve/COVID-19 list and waived receiver Thomas Ives.
Goldman had been placed on the list Aug. 3. The 6-3, 318-pounder rejoined the Bears for the start of training camp after opting out of the 2020 season due to concerns about COVID-19.
Selected by the Bears in the second round of the 2015 draft out of Florida State, Goldman has appeared in 67 games with 63 starts over five seasons. He has compiled 153 tackles, 12.5 sacks and 17 tackles-for-loss. Goldman earned Pro Bowl alternate honors in 2019 after registering 29 tackles, one sack and two tackles-for-loss.
Ives originally joined the Bears in 2019 as an undrafted rookie from Colgate and spent the past two seasons on the practice squad.
