Bears promote CB Terrance Mitchell to roster


The Bears made a change to their defensive depth on Monday, signing rookie cornerback Terrance Mitchell from the practice squad and waiving second-year linebacker Terrell Manning.

The move was declared in the NFL’s daily transaction report.

Mitchell (5-11, 195) had been on the Bears’ practice squad for the first six games of the regular season. The former Oregon player was a seventh-round selection of Dallas in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The addition of the 22-year-old Mitchell gives the Bears as many cornerbacks as linebackers (seven).

The 24-year-old Manning played 16 special teams snaps in Chicago’s 27-13 win at Atlanta on Sunday. The Bears added him to the roster on Saturday with linebackers Lance Briggs, Shea McClellin, Jon Bostic and D.J. Williams ailing.

  1. How is the Patchwork LB Core performing better than our expensive starters? Briggs’ culinary and shot buying skills taking away from his defensive role?

    Flip a coin, which Cutler is going to show up against the phins?

  2. all this team churn sure makes one wonder what the GM and coaches for the Bears were doing during the pre-season.

    all this team churn sure makes one wonder if the Bears were even a little bit healthier, what thier record would be instead of 3-3…

    List of injuries sustained through 6 weeks of 2014:

    Roberto Garza
    Matt Slauson
    Jermon Bushrod
    Jordan Mills
    (all 4 are starters)

    Lance Briggs
    DJ Williams
    Shea McClellin
    John Bostic
    (all 4 are starters)

    Jared Allen
    Stephan Paea
    Jeremiah Ratliff
    (all 3 are starters)

    Chris Conte
    Charles Tillman
    (Both are starters)

    Alshon and Brandon were both significantly hurt and played through it. There are many more injuries and for you to make an arrogant comment about the Bear’s GM and coaches reveals your lack of knowledge and confirms your trollhood. Way to go kid.

  4. Your note that the Bears had several injuries through game 6 indicates you have enough time to keep track of every injury report that the NFL requires to keep Vegas happy. The same type of list could be drawn for almost every team in the NFL and if you think the team was well vetted for this year at the start you win the argument I guess.

    I’ll just go back under the bridge with where I live and wait for NJ Governor Christie to liven things up a bit again.
