Bears sign LS Brandon Hartson

August, 10, 2013
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears signed long-snapper Brandon Hartson, the player's agent confirmed on Saturday.

The Bears needed to add another long-snapper after veteran Patrick Mannelly suffered a rib injury in the club's preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers on Friday night.

Mannelly is listed as week-to-week.

Hartson, a former long-snapper for the Houston Cougars, attended the Bears' rookie minicamp in May.
