On Sunday, the Chicago Bears added 7 players to their practice squad.

QB Jerrod Johnson

WR Ricardo Lockette

TE Fendi Onobun

RB Harvey Unga

DE Aston Whiteside

LB Jerry Franklin 

CB Demontre Hurst 

The Bears have one more open spot on their practice squad roster.

Hurst was one player that impressed the Bears coaching staff during the pre-season. There was the expectation that the Bears would lose Hurst to another team, fortunately for the Bears, that was not the case.

Johnson, the former quarterback of Texas A&M, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2011. Johnson was most recently with the Seattle Seahawks earlier this off-season.
