LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)

The Chicago Bears placed special-teams contributor Brian Iwuh on the waived/injured list and promoted linebacker Patrick Trahan from the practice squad on Tuesday.

The Bears announced the moves two days after Iwuh hurt his hamstring in a loss at Oakland.

Being waived/injured means Iwuh can be claimed by another team. If he clears waivers, he reverts to the Bears' injured-reserve list. Chicago could then reach an injury settlement with him.

Iwuh had 32 special-teams tackles in two seasons with Chicago, including a team-high 14 this year. He spent his first four seasons with Jacksonville. Trahan, undrafted out of Mississippi, has spent the past two seasons on the practice squads with the Bears and Tennessee Titans.
