The Chicago Bears have waived injured safety Brandon Hardin and
parted ways with four other players while trimming their active
roster to 53 players Saturday.
A third-round pick last year, Hardin left Thursday night's final
preseason game against Cleveland.
The Bears also waived linebacker J.T. Thomas and receiver
Terrence Toliver and reached injury settlements with defensive
tackle Corvey Irvin and offensive tackle Cory Brandon.
