The Bears added a needed reserve for an injury hampered unit Wednesday, and they also signed defensive tackle Jay Ratliff.

In addition to making official the signing of Ratliff, who agreed to a new deal last weekend, the Bears announced they had agreed to terms with long snapper Jeremy Cain.

Longtime long snapper Patrick Mannelly, who has played in more games than any Bear, left Lambeau Field Monday night in a walking boot because of a calf injury. He finished the game, but adding Cain provides some insurance.

According to John Mullin of CSNChicago.com, Bears coach Marc Trestman said Mannelly could miss a few weeks.

    I wonder if Dallas was waiting for the official signing before they pursued legal action.
