Bears Activate former Steelers OLB Cassius Marsh from Practice Squad



The Chicago Bears have elevated linebacker Cassius Maurice from their practice squad to their active roster in advance of Monday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Bears just signed Marsh to their practice squad on Monday. Chicago will be playing without top edge rusher Khalil Mack, who was ruled out of the game on Friday with a knee injury.

Marsh joined the Steelers after being signed off the Colts’ practice squad in December 2020. Down the stretch run last season, Marsh got some playing time, including some significant snaps in the Wild Card game against the Cleveland Browns.

Thought the 2021 preseason, Marsh registered three or more pressures in two out of the four Steelers’ games according to Pro Football Focus. He was beat out for the spot on the Steelers roster by upstart Jamir Jones.

The Steelers later lost Jones on waivers and eventually replaced him with Taco Charlton, who will back up Alex Highsmith and T.J. Watt on Monday.
