The Chicago Bears won’t have their top two running backs in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings, as the team ruled out both Khalil Herbert (ankle) and Roschon Johnson (concussion). 

With both running backs out, D’Onta Foreman – who was a healthy scratch last week – is the next man up for Chicago in the backfield.

Best Chicago Bears prop bet with Roschon Johnson out for Week 6

Justin Fields anytime touchdown scorer

Justin Fields has just one rushing score in five games this season, but he’s still carried the ball 39 times, and may see even more rushing work in Week 6.  

Khalil Herbert and Johnson are both out in this game, which means D’Onta Foreman will likely be the lead back for the Bears. He’s been a healthy scratch lately, so the Bears may need Fields to carry their ground game. 

Minnesota blitzes at one of the highest rates in the NFL, so that could force Fields to scramble a little more than usual. Don’t be shocked if he runs one in this week.
