The Bears’ crowded receiver room got a little less so Tuesday morning when the team cut undrafted rookie Emanuel Hall.
When the Bears signed the Missouri speedster immediately after the draft, they thought they’d found a worthy lottery ticket. He had sports hernia surgery shortly after rookie minicamp and avoided the physically unable to perform list when training camp started last month.
Hall was an intermittent practice participant, though, as the Bears sought to ease him back off the surgery. He did not play in Thursday’s preseason opener.
Hall was known as a deep threat in college.
