LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears have placed quarterback Connor Shaw and center Hroniss Grasu on season-ending injured reserve.
Shaw, who was vying for a roster spot, suffered a gruesome left leg injury near the end of Saturday’s preseason loss to Kansas City. The Chiefs’ Rakeem Nunez-Roches stepped on his leg following a pass to Josh Bellamy.
Grasu tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when he fell without being touched during a practice at Soldier Field in early August.
The Bears also waived linebacker Jarrett Grace, waived linebacker Lamin Barrow with an injury designation and placed linebacker Roy Robertson-Harris on the reserve list with a non-football illness on Tuesday.
The moves left Chicago with 75 active players.
