Tyler Bray’s return to the Chicago Bears’ active roster was short-lived.

On Wednesday, Bray was released by the Bears less than a week after he was moved from the practice squad to the active roster. With Mitchell Trubisky out this past Sunday with a shoulder injury, Bray served as the backup to Chase Daniel, who started the game against the Oakland Raiders in London.

Bray, who played at Tennessee from 2010-12, has thrown only one pass during his NFL career — an incompletion for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017. After going undrafted in 2013, Bray signed with Kansas City, where he played until the end of 2017.

In 2018, Bray signed with the Bears, but he spent most of the season on their practice squad. He was added to the active roster once, serving as Daniel’s backup when Trubisky was out with an injury for Chicago’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions.

Based on how last season went, it seems likely that the 27-year-old Bray could return to the Bears’ practice squad and be available should they need an extra quarterback again later in the year.

While Bray hasn’t done much in his NFL career, it’s always possible that injuries could lead to him getting into a game at some point this season or down the line.
