The Chicago Bears
made a minor roster switch on Wednesday afternoon heading into their final preseason game, as the team re-signed wide receiver Terriun Crump
to take the place of recently waived linebacker Dom DeCicco according to the team's official Twitter account
The 23-year-old Crump was not selected in April's 2012 NFL Draft, but quickly signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent and appeared to impress coaches in camp on numerous occasions. Although he was waived from the roster on Aug. 26 during the most recent round of cuts, the decision to release DeCicco due to a nagging injury ultimately opened up another roster spot.
A second-year linebacker from Pittsburgh, DeCicco recorded 17 special teams tackles as a rookie last season for Lovie Smith's defense. But after suffering a serious groin injury in Chicago's preseason game against the Broncos
, DeCicco was never able to recover quick enough to make a dent in the competition for the team's linebacker spots.
