Roster Moves: Bears sign DT Rush, add QB to practice squad


The Bears on Tuesday signed defensive tackle Anthony Rush to their 53-man roster and inked quarterback Kyle Sloter to their practice squad.

Rush entered the NFL with the Eagles last year as an undrafted free agent from Alabama-Birmingham but was waived July 27. The 6-5, 350-pounder appeared in nine games with the Eagles in 2019 and four contests with the Seahawks this year, registering 14 tackles, 3.0 tackles-for-loss, two pass breakups and 0.5 sacks.

Rush joins a depleted Bears defensive line that played Sunday in Tennessee without injured end Roy Robertson-Harris (shoulder) and tackle John Jenkins (ankle).

Sloter entered the NFL with the Broncos in 2017 as an undrafted free agent from Northern Colorado. The 6-5, 218-pounder has also spent time with the Vikings, Cardinals and Lions, but he has yet to appear in an NFL regular-season game.
