The Bears have reportedly traded linebacker Jon Bostic to the New England Patriots in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick.
Bostic, 24, was inactive in the Bears' loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 and has yet to appear in a game this season due to an ankle injury.

The former second-round pick by the Bears in 2013 spent the past two seasons in Chicago, where he accumulated 103 tackles, 2.0 sacks, one fumble recovery and one interception in 29 career regular-season games.
The move comes hours after the Bears shipped Jared Allen to Carolina for a conditional sixth-rounder.
Mitchell Trubisky hasn’t had the breakout 2018 season that Bears fans were hoping for. The offense has struggled, particularly in the second halves of games, and the young quarterback’s accuracy has been a big part of the issue.
After another rough start against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, fans already started to turn on their developing passer. They took to Twitter to express their frustration with Trubisky and even suggest a quarterback change.
Undrafted rookie free agent cornerback Kevin Toliver will make his NFL debut against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.
Veteran cornerback Marcus Cooper was ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury, and the Bears’ inactive list confirmed that Toliver will be dressing for Sunday afternoon’s game.
Also missing Week 3 is safety DeAndre Houston-Carson, who is still recovering from a broke forearm he suffered during the preseason.
Rookie draft picks Javon Wims and Kylie Fitts are once again inactive, while Bilal Nichols continues to get the nod on the defensive line over veteran Nick Williams.
Fullback Michael Burton is active this week after sitting out Monday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. Cooper’s absence and Burton’s return are the only difference from last week’s inactives list.
The Bears remain one of the healthiest teams in the NFL, and they’re looking to get out of Arizona once again unscathed.
