Bears Promote De’Vante Bausby To Active Roster, Waive DB Demontre Hurst

The Chicago Bears announced that they’ve promoted DB De’Vante Bausby to their active roster and waived DB Demontre Hurst.

The Bears also signed WR Darius Jennings and TE Marcel Jensen to their practice squad and placed TE Busta Anderson on the practice squad injured list.

The Bears’ practice squad now consists of:

  2. WR Daniel Braverman
  3. OL Cornelius Edison
  4. DE Jimmy Staten
  5. LB Ronald Powell
  6. OT Colin Kelly
  7. LB Jonathan Anderson 
  8. TE Rory Anderson (injured)
  9. WR Darius Jennings
  10. TE Marcel Jensen

Hurst, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Oklahoma back in 2013 before signing on with the Bears. Hurst was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but has been on and off of their practice squad the past three seasons.

Hurst was in the final year of his two-year, $1.110 million contract when the Bears waived him coming out of the preseason. Chicago signed him to their practice squad a day later before promoting him to their active roster last week.

In 2016, Hurst has been active for one game but has yet to record a statistic.
