Bears Add Linebacker from Practice Squad


The Chicago Bears elevated linebacker Jerry Franklin to the active roster from the practice squad and placed linebacker D.J. Williams on injured reserve due to a pectoralis injury.

The 6-1, 245-pound Franklin appeared in the final three contests of the 2012 regular season for Chicago, recording two special teams tackles. He spent the first six weeks of the 2013 season on the Bears practice squad.

Franklin will wear number 53.
