The Chicago Bears added some depth to their running backs room with the addition of running back Spencer Ware, who the team signed to their practice squad on Tuesday.

Chicago lost veteran running back Lamar Miller off the practice squad when he was signed to Washington’s active roster a few weeks ago. Ware has previously worked with Bears head coach Matt Nagy during his time in Kansas City.

The Bears also activated two players off the reserve/COVID-19 list, including receiver DeAndre Carter and practice squad receiver Thomas Ives.

Carter, who was claimed by the Bears off waivers from the Houston Texans on Nov. 18, served as Chicago’s punt returner for two games. Carter returned one punt for five yards. He was the fifth punt returner used by the Bears this season, with Tarik Cohen, Ted Ginn Jr., Dwayne Harris and Anthony Miller being the others.
