Ex Lion Bell added to Bears roster
The Chicago Bears (0-3, not only got thrashed by the Dallas Cowboys but they also suffered a loss at their thin running back position, losing starting RB Jeremy Langford with a high ankle sprain. He is expected to be out four to six weeks. So the Bears went out and inked former Detroit Lions (1-2, third NFC North) RB Joique Bell to help fill in. Now the Bears face those same Lions.
“Joique’s a good guy,” Lions Safety Glover Quin said. “Obviously we know who he is, familiar for us. His running style is familiar. How much he can pick up on in a couple days, who knows? If he gets in the game, we got to treat him just like he’s a Chicago Bear. He’s not a friend during the game. He’s a Chicago Bear and we’re trying to take him out.”
Bell was the Lions’ second leading rusher with 311 yards and four touchdowns on 90 carries. In his four years with the Lions he rushed for 2,235 yards and 22 touchdowns on 561 carries and caught 161 passes for 1,640 yards and a score.

After a spectacular upset of the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, your Chicago Bears are hoping to up their odds at making the playoffs with a strong showing against a struggling San Francisco 49er’s team who have yet to win on the road.
The Bears are hoping to spark their running game after rolling the Packers for 168 yards and are looking to split time between Matt Forte and rookie Jeremy Langford.
“I wish we could get more plays in a game, so both those guys could get more touches,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “Both of those guys splitting the load like that, we can keep them fresh and … we should only get better from here on out and those guys will get in the flow of it. You don’t want to have three-and-outs where they’re kind of in and out. You want to try to give them a little rhythm and you need to have an 8-to-12-play drive for that to happen.”
