Injuries played a part in several Bears moves in the final roster cut-down, including punter, where Ryan Quigley was retained while Adam Podlesh comes back from a hip-flexor injury.
At linebacker, the Bears kept seven instead of six, as many expected -- possibly due to Brian Urlacher's uncertain knee.
This roster quite possibly will change Sunday as several reports have said that former Bear DT Amobi Okoye, who had been cut by the Bucs, is returning to Chicago for a physical and could join the team.
