The Bears on Tuesday waived outside linebacker James Vaughters and signed running back Jeremy McNichols and outside linebacker Dewayne Hendrix to their practice squad.
Vaughters has registered three tackles while appearing in the last three games as a reserve.
McNichols was selected by the Buccaneers in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Boise State. He has appeared in three NFL games, all as a reserve, two with the 49ers in 2017 and one with the Colts in 2018. Both of his two career carries (for four yards) came with Indianapolis. He has also spent time with the Broncos and Titans.
Hendrix entered the NFL this year with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent from Pittsburgh.
