#Bears have placed LB Darryl Sharpton on IR with hamstring injury & promoted QB David Fales from practice squad.

Sharpton, 26, was drafted by the Houston Texans in the fourth round of the 2010 Draft. He spent four productive years with the Texans before signing a one-year deal with the Redskins in March.
The Bears signed him to a contract a few weeks into the season. Since then, he has appeared in five games and recorded 15 tackles and a pass defense.
Fales, 24, was taken in the sixth-round of this year’s NFL draft, even though the Bears said there was no way they would select a quarterback in the later rounds.
Fales was unable to make the final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he was later added to their practice squad.
It’s interesting that the Bears would call up a third quarterback before Monday’s game against the Saints.
