The Chicago Bears reportedly brought in several linebackers for a workout over the bye week. The team will be without Lance Briggs for more than a month, and rookie John Bostic has taken over at middle linebacker after D.J. Williams was lost for the season.
The Chicago Tribune reports, multiple players were given an audition:
"Larry Grant, Brian Rolle and Julian Stanford were involved in the workout, and one source said there may have been others.
Grant played 16 games for the 49ers last season and primarily was a special teams player. He started three games for San Francisco in 2011 and previously spent three seasons with the Rams, for whom he made eight starts. Grant was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Rolle was a sixth-round pick of the Eagles in 2011 and also has spent time with the Steelers. Stanford joined the Jaguars last year as an undrafted rookie free agent."
With the bye, the team has been given the week off. The Bears hope they'll return to practice on Monday a little bit healthier, although both Briggs and quarterback Jay Cutler are still weeks away from returning.
The Bears take on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on November 4th.
