SHARE Bears reach 53-man roster limit by promoting Patrick Trahan

The Bears elevated linebacker Patrick Trahan from the practice squad to the active roster Wednesday morning, reaching the NFL maximum.

The Bears then filled Trahan’s spot on the practice squad by signing defensive end Aston Whiteside.

Trahan appeared in five games last season, and finished with five five special teams tackles. Trahan has been on the Bears’ practice squad the last 11 weeks.

Whiteside is also a familiar face; he was on the practice squad the first five weeks of this season after spending most of the preseason with the Bears.
