Draft Scout Jay Ratliff News
10/22/15 - DT Jeremiah Ratliff has been released following two games. Ratliff played last week against Detroit and came out of the game with what the team reported was a neck injury. He had missed the first three games due to a league suspension for a violation of the substance abuse policy dating back to when he played in Dallas. Ratliff made eight sacks with the Bears in 18 games between 2013 and 2015. "We felt moving forward without Jeremiah was in the best interest of our team," Bears general manager Ryan Pace said. "We appreciate his contributions and wish him well."
10/18/15 - NG Jeremiah Ratliff left the game on Sunday with a neck injury and did not return. That forced rookie Eddie Goldman to take his spot on an already depleted defensive line. Defensive end Ego Ferguson was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a knee injury prior to the game. Ratliff, who was credited with three tackles, was questionable to play with an ankle injury. The Bears may have to make a roster move if Ratliff cannot return for their first game after their bye on Sunday.
