NFL roundup: Latest league news from Tuesday, June 21

The Chicago Bears suffered a hit to their offensive line depth.

The team announced Tuesday it had placed guard Dakota Dozier on the reserve/injured list. The club signed defensive back Jayson Stanley to fill the roster spot.

Dozier had been rotating in with the starters at right guard during Bears offseason practices before being carted off with an injury during last week's mandatory minicamp.

The injury thrust more uncertainty along the Bears' offensive line as we head towards training camp.

Dozier was a fourth-round pick by the New York Jets in 2014. He's started 27 games in his seven-year career with the Jets and Minnesota Vikings. He appeared in six games in 2021 after starting all 16 for the Vikes in 2020, and was signed by the Bears in March.

In addition, five coaches will participate in camp as part of the NFL's Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.
