The meeting of a observe squad tends to get missed. However between accidents and the NFL’s new roster-flex choice that expands game-day rosters to 55 gamers, we discover ourselves attending to know an increasing number of observe squad gamers.
And with that in thoughts, a pair of observe squad guys are getting the decision to the lively roster for Sunday’s sport towards the Packers:

Offensive lineman Dieter Eiselen and working again Artavis Pierce are becoming a member of the lively roster for Sunday’s sport.
Eiselen, 25, jumps on board to take a reserve lineman spot that Elijah Wilkinson leaves behind to (presumably) be a part of the beginning lineup. Wilkinson was Chicago’s proper deal with after Germain Ifedi left with an harm. And figures to play that function for so long as Ifedi is on IR. In the meantime, Eiselen is a desperation choice if push involves shove and the Bears want a physique. The Yale product was a part of Chicago’s 2020 UDFA class and made his debut in final yr’s loss on the Titans. Positive, it was simply 3 particular groups snaps. However all of them depend.
Pierce enters the fray with the Bears’ working backs room needing assist. David Montgomery is on IR for at the very least the following two weeks. And Damien Williams, Montgomery’s backup, gained’t be out there Sunday after testing optimistic for COVID-19. Chicago introduced in Ryan Nall earlier within the week, and now’s bringing alongside his former Oregon State roommate. Pierce, 25, had six carries and 34 speeding yards in 5 video games final yr. However he did have this nifty landing towards the Jaguars:
First NFL landing for former Beaver Artavis Pierce of the Bears.

Each Eiselen and Pierce may have yet one more game-day flex for use earlier than the Bears should decide on holding every for the long run. However no must cross a bridge we’re not even near approaching simply but.
