The Bears announced that they’ve officially promoted RB Ryan Nall to their active roster Saturday.
The Bears waived RB Mike Davis earlier in the day to protect a 2020 compensatory pick, so it’s not surprising that they would add a running back to their active roster before Sunday’s game.
Nall, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Oregon State back in 2018. He later agreed to a $1.71 million contract with the Bears, but was cut loose coming out of the preseason.
Chicago re-signed Nall to their practice squad and brought him back on a futures contract this past January. However, he was once again among their roster cuts at the start of the season.
During his college career at Oregon State, Nall rushed for 2,216 yards on 385 carries (5.8 YPC) to go along with 56 receptions for 563 yards receiving and 28 total touchdowns over the course of three seasons and 30 games played.
