(670 The Score) The Bears have placed linebacker Sam Acho on injured reserve and signed veteran guard Bryan Witzmann to the active roster.

Acho suffered a torn pectoral during the Bears' 48-10 win against the Buccaneers on Sept. 30. He had played in all four games this season and 51 since signing with the Bears in 2015.

Witzmann, 28, joins the Bears as veteran insurance on the offensive line. He has played in 27 career games, starting 13 with the Chiefs at left guard last season.

Fresh off their bye, the Bears (3-1) returned to practice Monday at Halas Hall. They play at the Dolphins (3-2) on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.
