Injuries prompt Bears to promote ILB Jonathan Anderson, WR Tanner Gentry

Injuries prompt Bears to promote ILB Jonathan Anderson, WR Tanner Gentry

Last season he led the Bears in tackles with 110.

The former West Virginia standout was given the chance to shed the injury-prone tag, and he was even projected to be Bears' top receiver this season.

White suffered the injury Sunday in the fourth quarter of the Bears' 23-17 loss to the Falcons in just his fifth career regular-season game. Both these injuries are unfortunate.

White went on injured reserve past year after suffering a spiral fracture to his left fibula in the fourth game. In his attempt to make a comeback past year, he appeared in just four games before being ruled out the rest of the season with a spiral fracture in his left fibula and ankle ligament damage that required yet another surgery.

Their promotions to the 53-man roster opened up two spots on the practice squad, which Pace filled with two more players at the skill positions.

Gentry was a UDFA out of Wyoming and had a solid showing in OTAs and developed a strong bond with rookie Mitch Trubisky.

Linebacker Jonathan Anderson was also activated from the practice squad.

It is not clear whether or not Alford will join the active roster or the practice squad upon arriving in the "Windy City". With Freeman out, Nick Kwiatkoski will see the defensive snaps in place of Freeman and Anderson will see the field in a few sub packages and largely on special teams.
