The Chicago Bears have re-signed CB De’Vante Bausby to their practice squad on Thursday and placed TE Justin Perillo on the practice squad injured list, according to Brad Biggs.

  2. RB David Cobb
  3. DB Jacoby Glenn

  8. DE Jimmy Staten
  9. TE Justin Perillo (injured)

Bausby, 23, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh State back in May of last year. He lasted just over a month in Kansas City before he waived and later signed to the Bears’ practice squad.

Chicago elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract but he was once again added to their practice squad after being among their final roster cuts. The Bears promoted him to their active roster last month before cutting him loose earlier in the week.

In 2016, Bausby has appeared in three games and recorded 12 tackles and no interceptions.

Perillo, 25, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Maine back in 2014. He was on and off of the team’s practice squad during his first two years with the Packers but managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason this year.

Green Bay, unfortunately, decided to waive him to make room for LB Carl Bradford on the active roster. Perillo signed on to the Bears’ practice squad a few weeks ago.

In 2016, Perillo has appeared in eight games for the Packers and caught four passes for 35 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
