Lattimore, 23, signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida back in May. He’s been on and off of the team’s practice squad a few times since the start of the season, but he could be active for the Week 6 match up against the Falcons now that LB Lance Briggs (ribs) and LB Shea McClellin (hand) have been ruled out.
During his one-year at South Florida, Lattimore recorded 98 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, one interception and four forced fumbles.
