The Chicago Bears waived David Fales on Tuesday, another indication that they are fully confident in Jimmy Clausen’s health after he sustained a concussion in the Bears last preseason game.

Its unlikely at this point that anyone will pick up Fales, a former sixth round draft pick, off of waivers.  Fales showed decently during the preseason but he’s unlikely to ever be anything other than a back up in the league.

The Bears have an open spot on their practice squad and undoubtedly have plans for Fales to fill it.  It will be interesting to see what they plan to do with the opening that the loss of Fales creates on the 53 man roster.
