Bears reserve RB Armando Allen is week-to-week with a right hamstring injury.

We're only posting because it severely damages Allen's roster chances. The Bears have precious little depth behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush, but are expected to sign free agent Curtis Brinkley on Monday. Allen took the rock three times for 12 yards in Chicago's preseason opener, but also lost a fumble.

Bears re-signed exclusive rights free agent RB Armando Allen.

A former undrafted free agent, Allen will compete for a change-of-pace role behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush. He'll collect $480,000 if he makes the 53-man roster.

Bears tendered exclusive rights free agent RB Armando Allen.

He'll collect $480,000, if he makes the 53-man roster. A former undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, Allen is a 24-year-old scatback and special teamer.

Bears RB Armando Allen rushed five times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's Week 5 blowout win over Jacksonville.

Allen was the garbage-time back this week, breaking off a 46-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter. Entrenched as the No. 3 behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush, Allen won't be worth a fantasy pickup entering a Week 6 bye.

Armando Allen and Lorenzo Booker are battling for the Bears' No. 3 RB spot.

With Kahlil Bell now out of the mix, it's a two-man race for the right to caddy behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush. Allen is five years younger but Booker brings 36 games of NFL experience.

Armando Allen rushed 11 times for 40 yards in Chicago's Week 16 loss to the Packers.

Making his NFL debut after being signed off the practice squad last Monday, Allen had an impressive night, pinballing off tacklers as he showed good burst up the middle. Like starter Kahlil Bell, Allen benefitted from some excellent blocking by the Bears' offensive line, but certainly looked like a player who could challenge for a roster spot next summer.

Bears signed RB Armando Allen and DE Thaddeus Gibson from their practice squad.

Undrafted out of Notre Dame, Allen rushed for 28 yards on eight preseason carries with the Bucs. He'll add depth behind Kahlil Bell and Marion Barber while Gibson pitches in on special teams.

Bucs waived RB Armando Allen.

A former four-star prep recruit, Armando went undrafted in April out of Notre Dame. The 22-year-old managed just 28 yards on eight preseason carries, and fumbled twice. The practice squad would be a best case scenario for Allen.
