Jalen Harris is signed by the Commanders off the Bears practice squad.
The Bears lose a member of their practice squad to the Commanders.
Jalen Harris, a defensive end from the Chicago Bears practice team, was signed by the Washington Commanders on Monday. Harris, the son of former Bear Sean Harris, was signed as an undrafted free agent by Chicago out of the University of Arizona and has spent the whole season on the team’s practice squad.
When defensive end Efe Obada was placed on injured reserve earlier today, Washington had a need at the position.
Harris (6’4″, 257) had five tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble for the Bears during the preseason, and now he’ll get an opportunity to play with the 4-7 Commanders and head coach Ron Rivera, who was the Bears’ Defensive Quality Control coach for two of Sean Harris’ years in Chicago.
