The Bears have begun the process of trimming their roster.
Dan Bazuin, the second-round draft pick from 2007, has been informed he will be placed on waivers, a source close to the player said. Bazuin never appeared in a regular-season game after spending all of last year on injured reserve. The defensive end played extensively Thursday night at Cleveland and showed hustle. He also showed he's still not at 100 percent with his left knee.
Bazuin, from Central Michigan, was originally injured during rookie minicamp. He had two surgeries in four months last year and dealt with swelling issues throughout training camp and preseason.
We'll do our best this weekend to get news of cuts out as soon as it becomes available. Check back often. The Bears need to get to 53 by 5 p.m. Saturday.
