The Bears may be back, but two of their players will not be.
Replacing them on the active roster will be tight end Eric Saubert and offensive lineman Corey Levin. Saubert was signed from the Raiders’ practice squad; Levin came from the Broncos’ practice squad.
McManis, a 31-year-old mainstay on the Chicago roster since 2012, is in the final year of his contract. Shaheen, a second-round pick in 2017, is under contract through 2020.
The Bears have climbed back to .500, and they host the 6-6 Cowboys on Thursday night.
