Bears promote Coulter, waive receiver

The Chicago Bears announced Tuesday that they have waived receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette.
Smith-Marsette had a few costly penalties and a fumble that hurt the Bears the last two games, so they decided to cut ties with the 23-year-old.
He had only one catch for 15 yards for the season.
The Bears claimed him off waivers in September after he was cut by the Vikings.
In a corresponding move, the Bears have promoted Isaiah Coulter to take his roster spot on the team.
Coulter played in three games with the Bears last season.
He was a fifth-round draft pick out of Rhode Island in 2020.
In other roster news, the Bears also signed tight end Sammis Reyes to their practice squad. He is the first Chilean-born player in NFL history.
