The Chicago Bears placed rookie tight end Kyle Adams on the injured reserve on Wednesday after the player tore his hamstrung during the team's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The tear occurred while the rookie attempted to block a field goal attempt by the Eagles during Chicago's 30-24 victory. Adams, 23, signed with the Bears earlier this year as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue. He appeared in all eight games this season, primarily as a special teams player. He's still never caught a ball in the NFL.
In order to replace Adams on the roster, the team has called up tight end Andre Smith from the practice squad. Smith, a rookie, was signed by the Bears earlier this year as an undrafted free agent.
