Chicago Bears waive backup quarterback Clausen, elevate Fales from practice squad


LAKE FOREST, Illinois — The Chicago Bears have waived quarterback Jimmy Clausen and elevated David Fales from the practice squad to back up Jay Cutler.

Clausen made two starts and appeared in six games over the past two seasons for Chicago. That included a forgettable 26-0 loss at Seattle in September that saw him throw for just 63 yards filling in for the injured Cutler and the Bears punt on all 10 possessions while falling to 0-3.

Coach John Fox said the Bears waived Clausen because other teams were showing interest in Fales, a sixth-round draft pick out of San Jose State in 2014.

Chicago (4-6), coming off a loss to Denver, visits Green Bay (7-3) on Thursday.
