Bears to add tight end Kevin Brock to practice squad

SHARE Bears to add tight end Kevin Brock to practice squad

The Bears will fill an opening on their practice squad today with tight end Kevin Brock, his agent Dennis Boyev said.

Brock, a Rutgers product, signed as an undrafted free agent with the Carolina Panthers, was claimed off waivers by the New York Jets in August and spent six weeks on the practice squad of the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this season.

He was a part-time starter for the Scarlet Knights last season and made 23 receptions for 241 yards in the final nine games last season. The 6-5, 255-pounder began his college career as a wide receiver.

The Bears have been dealing with some injuries at tight end. Desmond Clark is expected to return to practice this week after missing the Philadelphia game with a neck injury. Greg Olsen walked out of the locker room Monday with an ice pack on his left knee. Kellen Davis appeared to tweak an ankle in the loss to the Eagles.

The opening on the practice squad was created when running back Kahlil Bell was promoted to the 53-man roster on Friday.
