The Bears will be with out the service of linebacker, Lance Briggs for at least 4-6 weeks, which means it’s time the Bears to find someone to fill out the depth cart during his time of absence.

Chicago worked out several linebackers on Friday in hopes of landing a roster spot. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Larry Grant, Brian Rolle and Julian Stanford were some of the key players being worked out by the Bears. Grant, who served a four-game suspension to start the year, is the most experience of the group, while Rolle was a sixth-round pick of the Eagles in 2011.

The Bears have an open roster spot, although, per Biggs, they may have wait until Monday to  officially add anyone to the roster due to salary cap concerns.

Chicago also took a look at a few wide receivers, including 2012 Cowboys sixth-rounder Danny Coale, on Friday. Chicago dropped Ricardo Lockette from their practice squad this week, which may signal where they’d be looking to stash anyone they sign.

Former Eagles quarterback Mike Kafka was also in, although it appears he was simply there to throw to the receivers rather than vie for a spot in the temporarily Jay Cutler-less quarterback room.
