Roster Moves: Bears activate Goldman, promote Ledarius Mack

Bears DL Eddie Goldman and LB Ledarius Mack in action during the 2021 season.

The Bears on Saturday made the following roster moves:

• Activated nose tackle Eddie Goldman from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The sixth-year pro was placed on the list Tuesday. Goldman has appeared in 10 games with seven starts this season, registering 18 tackles, one tackle-for-loss and 0.5 sacks. His return should provide a huge boost Monday night to a Bears run defense that will face Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, who ranks third in the NFL in rushing with 978 yards and six touchdowns on 198 carries. Last Thursday night, Cook ran for 205 yards on 27 carries in a 36-28 win over the Steelers.

• Signed outside linebacker Ledarius Mack from the practice squad to the active roster.

The younger brother of star outside linebacker Khalil Mack originally joined the Bears in 2020 as an undrafted free agent from Buffalo. He has spent the majority of the past two seasons on the practice squad, but he was flexed to the active roster and made his NFL debut late last month in a loss to the Ravens, recording one tackle while playing 10 snaps on defense and eight on special teams.

• Signed quarterback Ryan Willis to the practice squad.

Willis split his college career between Kansas and Virginia Tech and was not selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Bears held a walk-through inside the Walter Payton Center Friday afternoon as they get ready for Monday night's battle with the Vikings at Soldier Field.
