SHARE Basanez officially still on team but...

Northwestern quarterback Brett Basanez is technically still a member of the Bears.

But don’t expect that to last very long.

According to a league source, Basanez was waived/ injured because he hurt his wrist (not sure which one).

He cleared waivers, and he was technically placed on the Bears’ injured reserve, and he’ll remain on there until he gets healthy.

This is done to protect players so teams don’t abandon them while injured. Teams are on the hook, in terms of bills and medical services, until the player is healthy.

Again, though, don’t expect Basanez around Halas Hall.

Basanez was made expendable after the Bears selected Dan LeFevour of Downers Growve in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. Jay Cutler and Caleb Hanie are the team’s top two quarterbacks.
