The Bears on Thursday placed cornerback Kyler Gordon on injured reserve with a hand injury he sustained in last Sunday's season-opening loss to the Packers.
The 2022 second-round pick will miss a minimum of four games and be eligible to return to action Sunday, Oct. 15 against the Vikings at Soldier Field.
Gordon started all 14 games he played last season as a rookie, registering 71 tackles, two tackles-for-loss, three interceptions, six pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Playing nickel back last Sunday versus Green Bay, he recorded one tackle and one pass breakup before getting injured.
The Bears on Thursday also signed cornerback Greg Stroman Jr. from the practice squad and re-signed rookie safety Macon Clark to the practice squad. Both spent the offseason and preseason with the Bears and were released as part of final cuts.
Stroman appeared in two games with one start last season for the Bears, compiling eight tackles, one interception and one pass breakup. Prior to arriving in Chicago, he played in 20 contests with three starts over three seasons with the Commanders from 2018-20, producing 38 tackles, one interception, four pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
Clark signed with the Bears this year as an undrafted free agent from Tulane.
