“We are aware of Sam’s arrest and are continuing to gather details surrounding it. We are disappointed whenever these circu*stances arise. We will deal with them appropriately once we have all the information.”

Hurd, a former Northern Illinois product, signed a three-year contract with the Bears this offseason after playing the previous five seasons with the Cowboys. The veteran receiver has been primarily a special teams contributor for the Bears.

Hurd was inactive for the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons because of a sprained ankle, and has eight receptions for 109 yards on the season.
