The Baltimore Ravens went to the Chicago Bears’ practice squad to upgrade their depth along the offensive line:
We have upgraded C Matt Skura from the practice squad and signed OT Dieugot Joseph to the 53-man roster.

The Bears signed Dieugot Joseph as an undrafted free agent out of Florida International and he competed throughout training camp and the preseason among a crowded room of offensive linemen. The 6-6, 300-pound tackle started his college career as a defensive lineman and even started 11 games at defensive tackle as a sophomore before making the switch to the other side of the line. Joseph started every game at left tackle in 2016 and earned an honorable mention on the All-Conference USA team.
Baltimore needed to add an offensive lineman to their active roster after placing guard Marshal Yanda on injured reserve. The Ravens also added former Bears running back Jeremy Langford to their practice squad for the second time. Langford was momentarily on the team’s active roster before being dropped late last week.
Joseph’s signing with the Ravens leaves Cameron Lee and Brandon Greene as the only offensive linemen on the Bears’ practice squad.
