With one of their veteran interior offensive linemen ailing, the Bears have bolstered their depth upfront, announcing the signing of center/guard Rob Turner on Sunday night.

Turner (6-4, 308) played for the Titans in 2013, starting the first six games at center before landing on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. The previous season, Turner started all 16 games for the Rams, seeing time at center and left guard.

Turner’s signing comes after center/guard Brian de la Puente suffered an MCL sprain in Friday’s exhibition game vs. Philadelphia. According to ESPN Chicago’s Jeff Dickerson, de la Puente could be sidelined for a few weeks, a timetable that figures to keep him out for at least one preseason contest, if not more.

To make room for Turner on the roster, the Bears waived guard Graham Pocic.

    Long is back from Infection. – Good
    Mills has a boot on – Potentially Bad or just precautionary.
    de la Puente sprained an MCL – Bad

    Assuming we’re in good shape now that Long is back, just awaiting a status update of Mills.

    Heal up boys, McCown’s not an option this year.

    Bear Down!

    PS – Looks like Josh took a beating in Tampa Bay (few plays I caught on Sportscenter). No more Monsters of the Midway to throw to. Good luck buddy!

    If this Turner guy has been a full-time starter the last two years prior to injury, he might not be so bad. Any scouting reports from Ram or Titan fans?

    Sounds too close to Ron Turner for my nerves to take.
