6. Wil the Chicago Bears continue to ride with D'onta Foreman?

First, the Chicago Bears were going to have a three-man committee at running back. Then, they made D'onta Foreman inactive as they opted for a two-man backfield with Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson. Herbert and Johnson got banged up, and the team had to go back to Foreman with Darrynton Evans.

Now, Foreman has looked strong. So, do they stick with Foreman moving forward? The good news is that they may not have to make a decision soon. Johnson was always expected to be a passing down back who could work the two-minute drill and other areas. So, there is always the early down role for Foreman if Herbert remains out. Herbert had a pretty serious injury, and there is not much of a timeline on his return.

It is worth noting that while Foreman has 60 rushes for 271 yards since he took over the backfield, Herbert had 51 rushes for 272 yards before his injury. In the last two games, Herbert had 28 rushes for 179 yards, so Foreman may be a product of Teven Jenkins getting healthy and the run game getting better naturally. Either way, the Chicago Bears will take the production.
