Here’s the Bears updated practice squad:

  3. DB Xavier Crawford
  4. WR Reggie Davis
  5. WR Jesper Horsted
  6. WR Thomas Ives

  13. DT Terry Beckner
  14. RB Lamar Miller
  15. DT Daniel McCullers

  17. S Marqui Christian

Christian, 25, is a former fifth-round of the Cardinals back in 2016. Arizona waived Christian a few weeks into the 2016 regular season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Rams.

Christian played out the year of his four-year, $2.55 million contract before agreeing to a one-year deal worth $2 million for the 2020 season with the Jets this offseason. However, the deal later fell through and he later signed on with the Bears in August. 

After being reinstated from suspension, the Bears released him and later re-signed Christian to their practice squad. The Jets would later sign him to their active roster before releasing him last week.

In 2019, Christian appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 34 tackles, no interceptions and two passes defended.
