The Chicago Bears' second preseason game has officially ended, and there are always the risers but also the fallers from the game. Which players either performed poorly or, by the circumstances around them and on the roster, are now in a worse spot today than they were a day or two ago?
10. What role will D'onta Foreman have with the Chicago Bears?
When D'onta Foreman signed with the Chicago Bears, the thought was that he would be a key name in the mix of a running back by committee approach. However, in the preseason, it has been anything but that. Khalil Herbert has been the leading rusher, and no one else has been in the mix.
Foreman has worked with the backups exclusively. Justin Fields only has seven snaps in the preseason, but every snap was with Herbert. Then, when the starters rested, Herbert rested while Foreman played. This is not a great development, but even worse is seeing the ascending Roschon Johnson.
Johnson has looked every bit the part in the preseason. He has vision, quick hips, and he can make plays in the passing game. The passing game value is something that Foreman does not have and something that will eventually push Johnson over Foreman.
Foreman is losing ground at the top and is being caught from the back as well. This is not a great spot.
