(CBS) The Bears have parted ways with quarterback Connor Shaw and running back Ka’Deem Carey, waiving both players Friday afternoon.

Shaw and Carey were both on injured reserve after suffering injuries in the preseason. Shaw had suffered a hamstring injury late in the preseason finale, while Carey injured his wrist during practice in August.

Shaw never played in a regular-season game with the Bears, signing with the team during July 2016. He suffered a broken leg a month later in that preseason.

Carey was a fourth-round pick to the Bears in 2014. He rushed 111 in his career for 443 yards.

Chicago opens its season Sunday at Soldier Field when it hosts Atlanta for a noon CT kickoff.
