One week into the season and the Bears have fine-tuned their “final” roster again, bringing back tackle Jonathan Scott to back up both left and right tackle and releasing tight end Kyle Adams in anticipation of activating recently signed Dante Rosario on game days.
The Bears went with just two backup linemen vs. the Cincinnati Bengals, keeping Eben Britton active as the reserve at tackle and guard, and dressing Taylor Boggs as the No. 2 center. The latter move was made rather than go into the game with left guard Matt Slauson as the backup center, meaning a shift at two positions if starter Roberto Garza went down.

Scott was part of a roster shuffle last week. He was part of the 53-man roster after final cuts, then released on Thursday. He was expected to be re-signed because of his ability to play left tackle behind Jermon Bushrod.
Quarterback Jerrod Johnson was re-signed to the practice squad, replacing guard Derek Dennis.
