  • Michael Joseph: Let go by Bears

    Joseph (undisclosed) was waived from injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Joseph began training camp on the non-football injury list, but he was ultimately cleared to participate a few days later. He then reverted to IR on Aug. 17, after being waived with an injury designation. Now that he's been let go, he'll be free to pursue opportunities with other teams once he is healthy.

    Joseph (thumb) did not practice Monday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Joseph was listed on the injury report with a broken thumb, but it is unknown when the injury actually occurred.
