Former KU receiver Rideau called up

The Chicago Bears placed veteran offensive tackle Fred Miller on injured reserve and elevated receiver Brandon Rideau from the practice squad on Saturday.

Officially listed with a shoulder injury, Miller appeared in just six games and played mostly on special teams in his 13th season.

Miller appeared in 192 games — 52 with Chicago the past four years.

A fourth-year pro from Kansas University, Rideau spent the first 11 weeks on the practice squad after catching five passes for a team-leading 127 yards and three touchdowns in the preseason.
