The Bears waived LB James Vaughters and signed DE Dewayne Hendrix to their practice squad on Tuesday per the NFL transactions wire.
Here’s an updated look at Chicago’s practice squad:
- DB Stephen Denmark
- TE Jesper Horsted
- WR Thomas Ives
- DB Michael Joseph
- OL Sam Mustipher
- QB Tyler Bray
- TE Dax Raymond
- LB Fadol Brown (Injured)
- T Dino Boyd
- DE Dewayne Hendrix
Vaughters, 26, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford back in 2015. However, he was unfortunately among the Packers roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
Vaughters later had brief stints with the Patriots and Chargers before signing on with the Calgary Stampeders for the 2017 season. The Bears signed him to a futures contract this January and he has bounced on and off their practice squad multiple times this season.
In 2019, Vaughters has appeared in one game for the Bears and recorded one tackle.
