The Chicago Bears will likely be without running back Khalil Herbert for another week after he was activated to return from injured reserve this week. 

Herbert’s practice window was opened, but he doesn’t appear to be ready to return from his ankle injury that he suffered in Week 5. 

That means D’Onta Foreman and Roschon Johnson will lead the backfield for the Bears on Thursday Night Football against the Carolina Panthers. 

Here’s the latest on Herbert, including which Bears running back to target tonight in the prop market. 

Khalil Herbert injury status for Week 10 vs. Carolina Panthers. 

The Bears have listed Herbert as questionable, but he reportedly will not play on Thursday night. 

Best Chicago Bears prop bet with Khalil Herbert expected to miss Week 10

D’Onta Foreman anytime touchdown scorer

I love this prop for D’Onta Foreman, who will likely be the bell-cow back against the Bears with Herbert out. 

Foreman has tallied just two scores on the ground this season, but he’s seen a ton of touches lately. He has 15, 16, nine, and 20 carries in his last four games and is averaging 4.4 yards per carry on the season. 

He should lead the backfield against a weak Panthers defense that has allowed 14 rushing scores (second most in the NFL) this season.
