Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery makes a catch against the Packers on September 13th at Soldier Field.

LAKE FOREST – Their impact isn’t as great with just a game left to go and no playoffs in sight.

But for what it’s worth the Bears freed up a few roster spots for their season finale against the Lions on Sunday by placing wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (Hamstring) and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Wednesday.

In their place the teams signed a pair of defensive tackles: Greg Scruggs and Terry Williams.

In his final contracted year with the bears, Jeffery left the Bears with a lot to think about as he approaches free agency. The receiver lost seven games to injury this season but he was effective when in the lineup, catching 54 passes for 807 yards and four touchdowns.

Goldman was strong in his rookie season as he started 12 games for the Bears and make 39 tackles. He also accumulated six tackles for loss that included four-and-a-half sacks. Goldman injured his ankle in the third quarter of the Bears win over the Bucs this past Sunday.
