Bears put Danny Trevathan on IR, sign Cassius Marsh to active roster and Bruce Irvin to practice squad

USA TODAY Sports

Linebacker Danny Trevathan will miss the rest of the Bears’ season.

Trevathan was placed on injured reserve on Friday. He missed the first two days of practice this week with a knee injury. He also missed the first four games of the season while on injured reserve with a knee injury and the return trip means that he will not be eligible to come back to the active roster.

Trevathan made his first start of the season in the Week Nine loss to the Steelers. He had seven tackles in that game and 19 tackles in five overall appearances.

The Bears filled his roster spot by signing Cassius Marsh off the practice squad. Marsh was involved in a key play in that Steelers game when he was flagged for taunting after sacking Ben Roethlisberger in the fourth quarter. Referee Tony Corrente’s call was met with much criticism from fans and in the media, but the NFL said it was correct and fined Marsh last week.

The Bears also confirmed the signing of veteran edge rusher Bruce Irvin to their practice squad.

  1. Cassius Marsh, LOL. Hope that dude has other skill sets when he’s done with football. Goldilocks with sleeve tattoos might not look great on a resume.

  2. And they got rid of Nick Kwickowsi (spelling?) for this guy! Someone we drafted and groomed, just like your supposed to, and he was much younger too.

  3. It’s OK, Ogletree was outplaying him anyway. This probably ends Trevathan’s tenure with the Bears especially if they reset the coaching staff after this season.

  4. Ends a whole lot more than just his tenure for the bears defense. The defense will be lucky to be top 20 next year, so you can forget about the defense being able to win games now. Its about to be years of average again for this team.
