Using four medical procedural moves and waiving undrafted rookie linebacker Jarrett Grace, a Notre Dame alum, the Bears trimmed their roster to 75 players Tuesday morning.

Center Hroniss Grasu, who tore his ACL during the Family Fest scrimmage, and quarterback Connor Shaw, who broke his leg in Saturday’s exhibition, were placed on Injured Reserve. Both were lost for the season.

Linebacker Lamin Barrow was waived with an injury settlement because of a foot issue. Outside linebacker Roy Robertson-Harris was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list.

NFL teams had until 3 p.m. to cut their rosters down. They must trim to 53 players by Saturday.
