6. How will the Chicago Bears mix in Khalil Herbert?
The Chicago Bears will have an interesting decision to make at running after their mini-bye. The Bears almost activated Khalil Herbert for the Panthers game, and he practiced all week. With the extra time off it is clear that Herbert is going to be healthy for week 11.
The issue is that D’onta Foreman has been excellent. He is coming off of two strong games when he carried the workload with 41 rushes for 163 yards. When Herbert was healthy, Foreman was inactive. Still, there is no way the Bears can go back to that, right? Who starts, and who handles more work?
Roschon Johnson is a rookie who has started to get more work in recent weeks after his concussion. More than that, he is far and away the best pass protector and the best pass catcher of the three backs.
It is starting to become clear that the Chicago Bears will come out of the bye with a three-man committee. The split between Herbert and Foreman will be a must-watch.
