WR Juaquin Iglesias, Six Others Join Bears Practice Squad

The Bears website reports on the team putting seven players on the practice squad on Sunday.

Seven players who were waived by the Bears during final cuts Saturday were placed on the team’s eight-man practice squad Sunday. The group includes wide receivers Juaquin Iglesias and Greg Mathews, fullback Eddie Williams, center/guard Edwin Williams, tackles James Marten and Levi Horn and defensive end Barry Turner. Iglesias, a 2009 third-round draft pick, was inactive for the first 15 games last year as a rookie before making his NFL debut in the season finale at Detroit. The 6-1, 205-pounder performed well in offseason practices, but sustained a quad injury that stunted his progress in training camp. Iglesias had four receptions for 85 yards and 1 touchdown in the preseason.
