The Bears are maneuvering to get their roster down to 53 players by Tuesday at 3 p.m. and got started by cutting four players Sunday and Monday.

The team waived offensive lineman Jean Delance with a non-football illness designation Sunday, then waived safety Jon Alexander, offensive lineman Corey Dublin and wide receiver Kevin Shaa on Monday to bring them down to 75 players.

Here’s a live tracker of who is leaving:
QB Nathan Peterman
RB De’Montre Tuggle
RB Darrynton Evans
TE Chase Allen
TE James O’Shaugnessy
WR Kevin Shaa
WR Chris Finke
WR Isaiah Coulter
WR Nsimba Webster
OL Dieter Eiselen
OL Jean Delance
OL Corey Dublin
OL Michael Schofield
OL Lachavious Simmons
OL Shon Coleman

DL Mario Edwards (NFLN)
DT Trevon Coley
DT Micah Dew-Treadway
DE Sam Kamara
DE Charles Snowden
LB DeMarquis Gates
CB Greg Stroman
CB Thomas Graham
S Jon Alexander
S A.J. Thomas
S Davontae Harris
The team also put defensive back Tavon Young on injured reserve.
Once the Bears finalize their roster Tuesday, it won’t actually be final. It’s a virtual certainty that they’ll pick up a few players cut by other teams. The most likely positions for that would on the offensive line and at cornerback and wide receiver.

The Bears also must keep injured wide receivers Byron Pringle and N’Keal Harry on the active roster Tuesday, but can put them on injured reserve after that if needed.
