Over the course of his three years in the league, Carey has played in 37 games with one start. He has been injured from time to time but hasn’t missed a great amount of time consecutively. He has carried the ball 111 times for 443 yards with an average of four yards per carry. Carey has two rushing touchdowns to go along with one receiving touchdown.
Carey was not able to get a lot of carries in his career with the Bears due to the talent ahead of him (Forte then Jordan Howard) but he has had some nice runs and a few nice moments with the Bears.
Unfortunately for him, he has been a “fringe” player for the last couple of years. But he has been able to stick because he can play on special teams. With another running back added to the roster in free agency (Benny Cunningham) to go along with Howard and Jeremy Langford, could Carey’s career in Chicago be coming to an end?
If Carey can prove he can play hard (and well) on special teams, then he just might stick around. But, he’s on the bubble to make the roster next season that is clear.
He’s been an unproductive and somewhat questionable pick that may have just landed on a team where the starter was so good, he had no chance of getting too many carries. Even if he makes it back on the team this year, it’s doubtful he will be around in 2018.
