- The Bears also waived WR Ify Umodu from their practice squad.
This comes after the news is that QB Jay Cutler will miss around two weeks or so with a hamstring injury.
Fales, 24, was taken in the sixth-round of last year’s NFL draft, even though the Bears said there was no way they would select a quarterback in the later rounds.
He has two years remaining on his four-year, $1.53 rookie contract, which includes base salaries of $510,000 and $600,000 when the Bears cut him loose just a few days ago.
Fales was able to make the final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but there’s a chance he could be added to the Bears practice squad in the coming days.
