The Chicago Bears have placed Sharpton on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury and elevated quarterback David Fales from the practice squad to the active roster.

Sharpton has appeared in 47 games with Houston (2010-13) and Chicago (2014). He had 27 tackles in five games for the Bears.

The Chicago Bears have signed linebacker Darryl Sharpton to a one-year contract. The deal was announced Thursday.

Sharpton appeared in 42 games with 19 starts for Houston from 2010 to 2013. He signed with Washington in the offseason but got placed on injured reserve after he suffered a high-ankle sprain late in camp. The Redskins released Sharpton this week.

A person familiar with the deal says the Washington Redskins have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent linebacker Darryl Sharpton. The person confirmed the deal on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the contract had not yet been signed.

Sharpton would help the Redskins' special teams and could be another candidate to replace London Fletcher, who is expected to retire. Sharpton has started 19 games over four seasons with the Houston Texans, including eight starts last year after Brian Cushing went down with a knee injury.
