Chicago Bears place Matt Toeaina on injured reserve

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The Bears placed Matt Toeaina on injured reserve while activating Cory Brandon from the practice squad.

The Chicago Bears placed defensive tackle Matt Toeaina on injured reserve and signed offensive tackle Cory Brandon from the practice squad to fill the open spot on the 53-man roster.

After starting 22 games over the last two seasons, Toeaina was limited to just three games this year due to a troublesome knee injury. Toeaina started the season opener before missing the next three games. He returned against Jacksonville, then missed the following seven contests. After returning against Minnesota, Toeaina sat out against Green Bay this past week. He will reportedly undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine if surgery is necessary.

The 25-year-old Brandon is in his second season after being undrafted out of Oklahoma. He spent training camp with the Bears before being released in the final cuts following the preseason. He was initially signed to Chicago's practice squad before being released in September. Brandon rejoined the Bears' practice squad in October. He will add depth to an offensive line that has battled injury issues recently.
