The Chicago Bears have released oft-injured linebacker Pernell McPhee and safety Quintin Demps.
The first major free agent signing by general manager Ryan Pace Randy Moss Jersey , McPhee had trouble staying healthy in three seasons with the Bears. He had 90 tackles and 14 sacks in 36 games for Chicago after playing his first four years with the Baltimore Ravens.
McPhee missed the first six games in 2016 following surgery on his left knee and had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in July. He also sat out three games late last season because of a shoulder ailment and finished the season on injured reserve.
A broken arm limited Demps, who signed with Chicago in March Ryan Allen Jersey , to three games.
The Bears announced the moves on Monday.
49ers running back Jerick McKinnon didn’t leave the field immediately after hurting his right knee during Sunday’s practice and said he felt fine, but that doesn’t mean he’s totally out of the woods.
The 49ers said after practice was over that McKinnon will be having an MRI to assess any damage.
Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports McKinnon grabbed the back of his knee while hobbling after a run early in the practice. McKinnon was not contacted during the play.
Washington running back Derrius Guice was diagnosed with a torn ACL after an MRI on Friday. Guice was injured in Thursday night’s game and Bronson Kaufusi Jersey , like McKinnon, said he felt well in the immediate aftermath of the injury.
The 49ers are currently without Matt Breida in the backfield due to a separated shoulder. Raheem Mostert and Joe Williams are next up on the running back depth chart.
