Bears Waive QB Connor Shaw & RB Ka’Deem Carey From Injured Reserve

The Chicago Bears have waived QB Connor Shaw and RB Ka’Deem Carey from injured reserve on Friday, according to Zach Zaidman.

Shaw, 25, wound up signing on with the Browns as an undrafted out of South Carolina last year. He is in the final year of his three-year, $1.53 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

Unfortunately, Shaw’s 2015 season came to an end with him being placed on season-ending injured reserve after he broke the thumb on his throwing hand during the preseason.

The Browns waived Shaw before he was claimed by the Bears. Shaw, unfortunately, suffered a broken leg right above the ankle during a preseason game last year and was placed on injured reserve at the start of the season.

The Bears brought Shaw back on a one-year, exclusive rights contract this past March but waived him with an injury designation last week and he later reverted to their injured reserve list.

In 2014, Shaw wound up appearing in one game and completing 14 of 28 attempts for 177 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

Carey, 24, is a former fourth-round pick out of Arizona by the Bears in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was entering the final year of a four-year, $2,663,380 rookie contract and was set to make a base salary of $690,000 this season.

The Bears waived him with an injury designation last week and he later reverted to their injured reserve list.

In 2016, Carey appeared in 12 games for the Bears and recorded 32 rushing attempts for 126 yards rushing (3.9 YPC) and no touchdowns, while also gathering five receptions for 55 yards receiving (4.6 YPC).
