Bears designate LB Matt Adams for return from IR

The Chicago Bears have designated linebacker Matt Adams to return from injured reserve, the team announced.

Adams returned to practice on Wednesday, opening a 21-day window for him to return from IR.

Adams suffered a calf injury in a Week 5 loss to the Vikings, and he’s missed the required four games. He was eligible to return this week, so it’s encouraging that Chicago opened his window.

Adams appeared in three of the first four games this season, where he recorded six tackles on defense. He’s also served as a primary contributor on special teams.

The Bears signed Adams to a one-year deal this offseason, and he brings with him a wealth of knowledge of Matt Eberflus’ defense. Adams spent his first four seasons with the Colts before following Eberflus to Chicago.
