Roster Moves: Bears remove Dalton, Edwards from COVID list

Bears QB Andy Dalton and DL Mario Edwards Jr. in action.

The Bears made the following roster moves Thursday:

• Removed quarterback Andy Dalton and defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Dalton had been on the list since last Friday; Edwards since December 13.

In his first season with the Bears, Dalton has appeared in six games with four starts, completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 1,017 yards with six touchdowns, six interceptions and a 79.9 passer rating.

In his second year with the Bears, Edwards has played in nine games with one start, registering seven tackles, one tackle-for-loss and 1.5 sacks.

The removal of Dalton and Edwards leaves the Bears with nine players on the COVID list: Running back Ryan Nall, receivers Allen Robinson II and Isaiah Coulter, tight ends Jesse James and Jesper Horsted, defensive end Bilal Nichols, inside linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe, cornerback Jaylon Johnson and safety Tashaun Gipson Sr.

• Signed outside linebacker Sam Kamara to the active roster from the practice squad. The undrafted rookie from Stony Brook was removed from the COVID list Wednesday after an eight-day stint.

Kamara has appeared in five games this season, all as a reserve, compiling four tackles on defense and one stop on special teams.

• Re-signed outside linebacker Ledarius Mack to the practice squad, two days after he was waived. The younger brother of Bears star Khalil Mack originally joined the team in 2020 as an undrafted free agent from Buffalo. Ledarius has appeared in two games this season against the Ravens and Vikings, recording one tackle.

With the Bears making the long trek out west to Seattle this weekend, here are the 10 longest trips they've made over the past decade.
