Bears claim WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette off waivers


(670 The Score) The Bears have claimed receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette off waivers, NFL Media reported Thursday.

Smith-Marsette was waived by the Vikings on Wednesday after the team acquired receiver Jalen Reagor from the Eagles in a trade. The 23-year-old Smith-Marsette has five career receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns over eight games played.

The Bears don't need to make a corresponding roster move after claiming Smith-Marsette. That's because Chicago placed receiver N'Keal Harry on injured reserve Thursday morning, which opened a place on the 53-man roster.
