The Chicago Bears (3-7) haven’t had the success this year they were hoping after trading away the number one overall draft pick this summer. As Chicago’s playoff chances are next to zero this season, they are looking to take away as many positives away from this season as possible.
As the team prepares to take on the division leading Detroit Lions (7-2), they added a 25-year-old to the roster.
The Chicago Bears Add Running Back Khalil Herbert To Active Roster Prior To Matchup Vs The Detroit Lions
Matt Eberflus announced Saturday that the Chicago Bears will activate running back Khalil Herbert from injured reserve.
Herbert, 25, missed Chicago’s last five games after injuring his ankle in Week five against Washington. He led the Bears in rushing with 272 yards at the time of his injury, averaging 5.3 yards per carry.
Herbert is now available for the 53-man roster after Darrynton Evans was waived on Thursday.
Now that they have an abundance of healthy running backs, the Bears are trying to determine how to split carries among their top three rushers. As the Bears attempt to find a balance in how they will deploy their running backs against Detroit’s No. 3 run defense, the heavy workload Foreman carried in Herbert’s absence was notable to the coaches. In Chicago’s last game against Carolina, Foreman had 23 touches for 92 total yards.
If the Bears want to upset the Lions, establishing a rushing attack early will be necessary.
