Bears place WR Byron Pringle (calf) on injured reserve

The Chicago Bears placed wide receiver Byron Pringle on injured reserve Tuesday with a calf injury.

The team activated linebacker Joe Thomas from the practice squad to fill the vacancy on the 53-man roster.

Pringle, 28, exited Sunday’s win against the Houston Texans in the first half after catching one pass for 11 yards.

He has two receptions for 33 yards in three games with Chicago after spending his first three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Pringle will be eligible to return in Week 8 after missing a minimum of four games.

Thomas, 31, had five tackles in his Bears debut Sunday against the Texans. He previously played with the Green Bay Packers (2015-17), Dallas Cowboys (2018-20), Texans (2021) and Baltimore Ravens (2021).
