Tyler Bray: Headed back to practice squad

Bray was reverted back to the Bears' practice squad Monday, according the NFL transaction log.

Analysis: Bray was on the Bears' roster but inactive in Week 4 against the Colts. It was the first time Bray was promoted to the active roster this season. He can be reverted back to the practice squad on one more occasion during the 2020 campaign.

Tyler Bray: Promoted to active roster

The Bears elevated Bray to the active roster Saturday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Don't read into this move as having anything to do with Mitchell Trubisky's dropoff. According to Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago, Bray is expected to serve as the No. 3 quarterback Sunday versus the Colts, and he'll likely be a healthy scratch.

Tyler Bray: Not retained by Chicago

Bray was released by the Bears on Saturday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Bray wasn't going to see the field in Chicago after the team traded for Nick Foles this offseason, but after spending the entire training camp with the Bears, he may be called upon to serve as a backup if either quarterback is injured.

Tyler Bray: Re-ups with Bears

Bray signed a contract with the Bears on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Bray spent most of the 2019 campaign on Chicago's practice squad, though he had a brief stint on the active roster in October while Mitchell Trubisky dealt with a shoulder injury. With the Bears having traded for Nick Foles from Jacksonville in exchange for a fourth-round pick, Bray now slots in as the team's No. 3 signal-caller.

Tyler Bray: Joins Bears' practice squad

The Bears signed Bray to the practice squad Thursday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: This was an expected move after the Bears cut Bray on Wednesday. The expectation in Chicago is that Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will be healthy to suit up against the Saints in Week 7, so Bray doesn't stand to rejoin the 53-man roster unless plans go awry.

Tyler Bray: Likely heading to practice squad

The Bears cut Bray on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Analysis: This move supports the notion that Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will be ready for Week 7's game versus the Saints. Bray will likely return to the Bears' practice squad, and he could be brought back up if Trubisky suffers a setback.

Tyler Bray: Officially signed to active roster

The Bears promoted Bray to the active roster Saturday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Analysis: This move was expected since Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Raiders and likely a few more after that. Bray hasn't played in a game since 2017 with the Chiefs, and he only has one NFL passing attempt which ended up incomplete. Bray will serve as the backup to Chase Daniel.

Tyler Bray: Promotion to active roster on tap

The Bears are expected to promote Bray from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Bray's forthcoming promotion is expected to come after Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is officially ruled out for Week 5. Once on the active roster, he'll serve as the top backup to Chase Daniel versus Oakland.

Tyler Bray: Unable to stick in Chicago

The Bears cut Bray on Saturday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Bray was underwhelming during the preseason, completing 15 of 30 passes for 138 yards in his appearances. He was a long shot to beat out Chase Daniel for the back up job, so Bray could be a candidate for the practice squad in Chicago or elsewhere.

Tyler Bray: Underwhelming performance

Bray completed six-of-13 passes for 53 yards in the Bears' loss to the Giants.

Analysis: For the second game in a row, Bray completed fewer than half of his passes while teammate Chase Daniel continued to be very efficient. It's looking like Bray will likely settle in as the third quarterback on Chicago's depth chart.

Tyler Bray: Unimpressive effort

Bray completed nine-of-17 passes for 85 yards in Chicago's 23-13 loss to the Panthers.

Analysis: Despite playing the entire second half against the deepest reserves on the Panthers, Bray completed less than half of his passes. This performance didn't help if he was trying to take over Chase Daniel's job as the No. 2 quarterback, and it looks like the veteran will likely continue his role as the third-string signal caller for the Bears.

Tyler Bray: Staying in Chicago

Bray signed a one-year deal with the Bears on Wednesday.

Analysis: Bray spent most of 2018 on the Chicago practice squad, eventually earning a promotion to the active roster when Mitchell Trubisky injured his shoulder in November. With backup quarterback Chase Daniel still under contract, Bray figures to enter training camp as part of the third-string offense.

Tyler Bray: Re-joins Chicago practice squad

Bray was signed to the Bears' practice squad Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Bray has moved up and down Chicago's depth chart for most of the season but never really challenged Chase Daniel for the backup spot. He'll likely provide scout help during practice as the Bears gear up for their first home playoff game since the 2010-11 season.

January 2, 2019 10:22 AM EST

Tyler Bray: Released Saturday

Bray was released Saturday by the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The move was made in order to free up a roster spot for guard Kyle Long, who was activated off injured reserve Saturday. Bray joined the Bears in November while Mitchell Trubisky dealt with a shoulder injury, but he never played a snap, falling behind Chase Daniels on the depth chart.

Tyler Bray: Promoted to active roster

Bray was promoted Wednesday from the practice squad to the active roster.

Analysis: This is another hint Chase Daniel will replace Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) as the starting quarterback Thursday in Detroit. The 26-year-old Bray worked with coach Matt Nagy from 2014 to 2017, mostly serving as the No. 3 quarterback in Kansas City. Bray has attempted just one pass in an NFL regular-season game.

Tyler Bray: Secures spot on practice squad

Bray signed to the Bears' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The longtime Chiefs backup moved to Chicago this offseason but ultimately failed to secure a role on the 53-man roster. He'll remain with the team as a member of the practice squad, where he could potentially be called up to the active roster at some point this season.
