Bears add OG Chris Riley to practice squad

November, 22, 2012
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- One day after elevating offensive tackle/guard James Brown to the active roster, the Chicago Bears signed offensive guard Chris Riley to the practice squad Thursday.

Riley, a native of Wadsworth, Ill., entered the NFL in 2011 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Illinois State. He spent last preseason with the Cincinnati Bengals before eventually landing on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad for the majority of the 2011 campaign.

Brown was promoted off the practice squad Wednesday after former starting left guard Chilo Rachal left the team for personal reasons.
