It appears veteran long-snapper Patrick Mannelly will be active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

On Tuesday, the Bears waived Jeremy Cain and signed linebacker Lawrence Wilson to the practice squad.

Cain played in Chicago's last two games, filling in at long-snapper in Mannelly's absence.

The 26-year-old Wilson spent the 2013 preseason with the Bears, registering five tackles and two special teams tackles.

Wilson was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth-round of the 2011 Draft out of the University of Connecticut where he was named to the All-Big East First Team in his junior and senior seasons. In addition to the Bears and Panthers, he has spent time with the Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints, but hasn't appeared in a regular season contest.
