(670 The Score) One day after an impressive NFL debut, Bears rookie cornerback Thomas Graham Jr. was signed to the team's active roster.
A sixth-round pick of the Bears in the NFL Draft last spring, Graham had three pass break-ups during his team's 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday night at Soldier Field. It marked his first NFL start at cornerback after he had been on the practice squad this season.
In other roster moves, the Bears placed defensive lineman Bilal Nichols on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The team also activated defensive backs Artie Burns and Duke Shelley from that list.
The Bears (4-10) return to practice Wednesday at Halas Hall.
