(CBS) Bears rookie receiver Daniel Braverman will get the chance to prove himself after his position-mates greatly disappointed in Sunday.
Chicago on Tuesday promoted Braverman from the practice squad to the active roster, two days after the Bears dropped 10 passes — including two in the end zone in the final minute — in a 27-21 loss to the Titans. The Bears selected Braverman in the seventh round of the 2016 draft. While he was widely praised in the preseason for his play, he’s spent the entire season on the practice squad.
Additionally, the Bears signed tight end Justin Perillo to the practice squad and officially placed linebacker Danny Trevathan on injured reserve.
Perillo has appeared in 20 games in his NFL career since entering the league as an undrafted free agent with the Packers in 2014.
Trevathan tore the patella tendon in his right knee late in Sunday’s game.
