The 30-year-old reportedly is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Sanchez, who is playing for his third different team in the past three seasons, signed a one-year deal with Chicago in March.

Sanchez spent last season as the Cowboys backup quarterback, appearing in just two games. The Bears had waived QB Connor Shaw earlier Tuesday but rescinded the move in light of Sanchezs injury.

The Bears underwent a makeover at quarterback this offseason, cutting ties with longtime starter Jay Cutler and signing Mike Glennon and Sanchez as well as drafting Mitch Trubisky with the No. 2 pick.
