The Bears have until 3 p.m. CT to get their active roster to 53 players, and then can begin working on their expanded 16-player practice squad.
As of right now, the Bears have 74 players on their roster, meaning 21 cuts remain to get down to 53. We'll be keeping track of cuts here, though the Bears did not officially waive any players on Friday.
The Bears did waive six players on Thursday:
DL Lee Autry
ILB Keandre Jones
OL Corey Levin
RB Napoleon Maxwell
WR Ahmad Wagner
WR Alex Wesley
Already on Friday, though, a few notable players were released, headlined by Washington running back Adrian Peterson. The Denver Broncos cut veteran inside linebacker Todd Davis, while the Arizona Cardinals waived 2019 fourth-round wide receiver Hakeem Butler.
On Thursday, another surprise cut happened: Ex-Bears safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was released by the Dallas Cowboys.
