Running back P.J. Pope was signed to the practice squad Tuesday morning after completing a physical for the team, a league source said.
Pope led the Bears in rushing during the 2006 preseason, gaining 153 yards on 40 carries with one touchdown, and the team signed him to the practice squad. He lasted until injuries wiped out Green Bay's depth chart and the Packers signed him away to their 53-man roster.
Pope was in competition in Green Bay before a knee injury prior to the Packers' first preseason game sidelined him. He was waived/injured, but was cleared to go by the Bears. Pope had a strong junior season at Bowling Green, but was hobbled by injuries as a senior and went undrafted. GM Jerry Angelo liked him as an underclassmen, and the team signed him as a free agent. They were disappointed to lose him to the Packers.
More news later when we find out who was cut to make room for Pope.
