It didn’t take long for cornerback Jacoby Glenn to return to the Chicago Bears. Just one day after waiving him, the team announced on Wednesday that he has re-signed with the practice squad.

Ultimately this move was a formality as the Bears were just simply switching cornerbacks between the 53-man roster and the practice squad. The team promoted Demontre Hurst from the practice squad on Tuesday into Glenn’s position and waived him from the active roster. Their intentions clearly were to bring him back to the practice unit the entire time.

The Bears have done this same thing several times this year as they attempt to fix their struggling defense. Hurst, who joined the team in 2013 as an undrafted free agent, has shuffled between the practice squad and the active roster his entire career and has already bounced back and forth several times this year.

Glenn, who has appeared in seven games this year, has made three starts this season and recorded 26 tackles. He also has one interception and six pass breakups to his name, so the second year player has done an admirable job.

At this point for Glenn, the AAC co-Defensive Player of the Year with UCF in 2014, there is a very likely chance that he will return to the 53-man roster this year. With the Bears secondary in constant flux, the rotation of cornerbacks seems destined to continue.
