He was signed to the Chicago Bears' practice squad on Sept. 13 where he spent time between the practice squad and active roster, appearing in two games prior to being waived on Oct. 21.

The 49ers also released rookie running back Kelvin Taylor from the practice squad. Taylor was originally selected by San Francisco in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
