Bears waived RB Michael Ford.

Despite ideal athletic attributes, Ford couldn't climb the depth chart in Chicago. We noticed him playing behind undrafted free agents in preseason, which obviously boded poorly for the fumble-prone former LSU Tiger.

Bears coach Marc Trestman concedes second-year RB Michael Ford has fallen down the depth chart due to "inconsistency."

Ford has worked as Chicago's No. 5 back in both preseason games, behind Matt Forte, Shaun Draughn, rookie Ka'Deem Carey, and UDFA Senorise Perry. Despite an impressive 2013 Combine, Ford went undrafted two Aprils ago and appears to have been ruled out of the No. 2 back mix. Draughn is the favorite.

Coach Marc Trestman stated after minicamp that the Bears' No. 2 running back battle remains wide open.

Fourth-round pick Ka'Deem Carey is considered the favorite to back up Matt Forte, but we can't rule out ex-Chief Shaun Draughn, or highly athletic second-year UDFA Michael Ford. "We’ve got a really good competition," Trestman said. "But we just don’t know who has the edge when they’re only in shorts."
