SHARE Bears place running back Senorise Perry on injured reserve

The Bears reached the 75-man roster limited Tuesday by placing running back Senorise Perry on injured reserve. Perry injured his left foot against the Bengals on Saturday.

Perry was No. 5 on the depth chart at running back behind Matt Forte, Jacquizz Rodgers, Jeremy Langford and Ka’Deem Carey. But Perry was a valuable special-teamer. He led the Bears in special-teams tackles last season.

The Bears also claimed quarterback Zac Dysert and tight end Gannon Sinclair off waivers. The Bears released quarterback Shane Carden, an undrafted rookie, and guard Lucas Nix.
