The Bears on Saturday elevated safety Adrian Colbert and cornerback Greg Stroman Jr. from the practice squad to the active roster in advance of Sunday's season finale against the Vikings at Soldier Field.

Also on Saturday, the Bears added "illness" to cornerback Kyler Gordon's knee injury on the injury report and remains questionable.

Colbert was signed to the practice squad Nov. 29 and has played in one game this season, playing 10 snaps against the Packers Dec. 4 at Soldier Field. 

Before joining the Bears, Colbert appeared in 40 NFL games with 22 starts with the 49ers (2017-18), Dolphins (2019), Giants (2020), Jets (2021) and Browns (2021). He has recorded 109 tackles, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Colbert has also spent time with the Seahawks (2019), Chiefs (2020), Patriots (2021) and Titans (2020).

Stroman originally signed with the Bears April 21 before being waived as part of final cuts Aug. 30. He was re-signed to the practice squad Dec. 28 and elevated to the active roster for last Sunday's game in Detroit, playing 11 snaps on special teams. 

Stroman was selected by the Commanders in the seventh round of the 2018 draft out of Virginia Tech. He appeared in 20 games with three starts over three seasons with Washington from 2018-20, registering 38 tackles, one interception, four pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

After being released by the Commanders on Aug. 17, 2021, he spent parts of last season on the practice squad with the Bills and Rams.
