Practice makes perfect: All eight players signed to the eight-man practice squad Saturday were with the team in training camp. Quarterback Matt Blanchard, running backs Armando Allen and Harvey Unga, offensive tackles Cory Brandon and James Brown, wide receiver Joe Anderson, defensive end Aston Whiteside and cornerback Isaiah Frey all have jobs. Practice squad players earn a minimum of $5,700 per week during the season.
Taking a look: The Bears brought in veteran offensive tackle Jonathan Scott for a visit. The Lions released him earlier this week after he suffered a knee injury early in training camp. A fifth-round pick for the Lions in 2006, he played in 28 games and made 14 starts over the last two seasons for the Steelers. It's likely the Bears wanted to see how Scott is physically.
Extra points: Guard Ricky Henry, whom the Bears waived Friday, was signed to the Saints practice squad. They tried to sign him to their 53-man roster late last season. … Wide receiver Chris Summers, let go in first cuts, joined the Vikings practice squad. … Safety Mark LeGree, waived by the Bears, will join the Falcons practice squad. … The Vikings released former Bears cornerback Zack Bowman. … The Bears return to practice Monday.
