Bears waived QB Matt Blanchard with an injury settlement.

Blanchard fractured a knuckle on his non-throwing hand in the second preseason game. He did have a shot to stick on the practice squad prior to the injury. The Bears have since signed Trent Edwards as their No. 3 quarterback.

Bears third-string QB Matt Blanchard has been diagnosed with a fractured knuckle.

Although the injury is to Blanchard's left (non-throwing) hand, it severely dents his roster chances. Coach Marc Trestman hinted the team will sign another quarterback. The Bears worked out JaMarcus Russell, Trent Edwards and Jordan Palmer earlier this summer. Considering Jay Cutler's recent fragility, we'd guess the Bears would like to carry three quarterbacks.

They also waived/injured LB Adrien Cole and G Nick Peischel. McCargo is the only vested veteran here. Coston, Cump, and Blanchard were camp bodies.
