With Armando Allen out with a hamstring injury, rookie Michael Ford has been given the opportunity to win the Bears No. 3 running back job.
Running backs Matt Forte and Michael Bush combined for 107 yards on 17 carries vs. San Diego in addition to Bush and fullback Tony Fiammetta being targeted on two passes.
Whether or not most of us are saying it, we're definitely thinking it:
With Armando Allen day-to-day with a hamstring injury the Bears signed running back Curtis Brinkley to a one-year deal and waived wide receiver Marcus Rucker.
The first preseason game was exactly that – “preseason” – but it rates ahead of any individual training-camp practice as an indicator.
