Roster Move: Bears designate Braxton Jones, Khalid Kareem for return from IR

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears announced on Wednesday that offensive tackle Braxton Jones and defensive lineman Khalid Kareem for return from injured reserve.

Jones suffered a neck injury in Week 2.

"Just functionality," Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said about Jones returning to action. "Is he functional in terms of his movements and what he's done in terms of conditioning, that would be the second thing. Him working through it. When he feels like he's ready and the trainers say that he's good to go, we look at him ane coaches, we'll give him the green light. But I don't know when that's going to be. He's got 21 days to figure that out. Hopefully, it's sooner rather than later."

Kareem had a hip issue.

Justin Fields (thumb), Nate Davis (ankle), Terell Smith (illness), and Jaquan Brisker (illness) were Bears played that didn't attend practice on Wednesday.
