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.
