ESPN's Jeff Dickerson left Ka'Deem Carey off his projection for the Bears' 53-man roster.
Dickerson had the Bears taking four running backs with Jeremy Langford claiming the final spot over Carey. Ex-Ram Benny Cunningham also has a leg up on Carey due to his expertise on special teams. A fourth-round pick out of Arizona in 2014, Carey has never topped 200 rushing yards in a season. Cunningham, Langford and rookie Tarik Cohen are slated to back up bell cow Jordan Howard.

Bears declared RB Ka'Deem Carey, S Deon Bush, CB Bryce Callahan, FB Paul Lasike, WR Daniel Braverman, OLB Pernell McPhee, and OLB Leonard Floyd inactive for Week 17 against the Vikings.

Carey appeared in 12 games this season, totaling 32 carries for 126 scoreless yards. He and Jeremy Langford split No. 2 duties most of the year, but Jordan Howard emerged as a true every-down back, leaving Carey and Langford mostly useless. Carey has one year left on his rookie deal for 2017.

Bears declared RB Ka'Deem Carey, LB Jonathan Anderson, WR Daniel Braverman, DB DeAndre Houston-Carson, G/C Eric Kush, FB Paul Lasike, and CB Cre'von LeBlanc inactive for Week 16 against the Redskins.

Carey has played just 27 snaps since the Week 9 bye. LeBlanc has a knee injury.

Ka'Deem Carey rushed two times for three yards in the Bears' Week 8 win over the Vikings.

He played just six snaps as the No. 2 back behind Jordan Howard. Howard handled 30 touches on 50 snaps as the clear-cut lead dog Monday night. Howard developed the hot hand by taking his second carry of the night for 69 yards. Coach John Fox rode him the rest of the way. Carey was still ahead of Jeremy Langford (five snaps), who was making his return from an ankle injury.

CSN Chicago's John Mullin believes the Bears will ride the "hot hand" at running back Monday night against the Vikings.

Mullin "thinks" Ka'Deem Carey will pace the backfield in touches, but Jeremy Langford or Jordan Howard could just as easily lead the team. This is a situation to avoid if at all possible, especially considering the matchup. Matt Asiata is a much better option in the 33 percent of leagues he is still available.

Ka'Deem Carey managed 48 yards on 10 carries and caught his only target for nine yards Thursday in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Packers.

He out-touched Jordan Howard 11-7 and outgained him by 35 yards (57-22). His longest run came on a 24-yard burst midway through the second quarter. Carey’s standalone value is still limited but his increased presence has been a big drain on Howard’s production over the last two weeks. Carey gets a tough matchup against Minnesota in Week 8.

Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) is questionable for Week 7 against the Packers.

He'll be fine after being limited all week. Carey siphoned nine carries from Jordan Howard last week, running for 50 yards. This could be more of a committee moving forward after Carey out-gained Howard in Week 6.
Wed, Oct 19, 2016 04:03:00 PM

Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) was limited in Monday and Tuesday's practices.

Carey played through the issue in Week 6, and avoided setbacks. He'll be ready to go as Jordan Howard's backup for Thursday night's game against the Packers.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 07:38:00 PM

Ka'Deem Carey rushed nine times for 50 yards in the Bears' Week 6 loss to the Jaguars.

Carey actually led the Bears in rushing, but was just a breather back for starter Jordan Howard. The 50 yards were the third most of Carey's three-year career. Carey is the clear No. 2 in Jeremy Langford's absence, but has zero standalone value, and is a bottom-shelf handcuff.
Sun, Oct 16, 2016 05:38:00 PM

Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) is active for Week 6 against the Jaguars.

Carey will have a small role behind workhorse Jordan Howard.
Sun, Oct 16, 2016 11:42:00 AM

Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) has remained "limited" in Bears practice.

Carey returned in Week 5 and will play against the Jaguars. He'll be lucky to get 3-4 touches behind Jordan Howard.
Thu, Oct 13, 2016 06:45:00 PM

Bears WR Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) will play against the Colts in Week 5.

Carey is back after missing two weeks with a bad hamstring. He'll serve as the Bears' No. 2 running back behind workhorse Jordan Howard. Carey has logged seven rushing yards on only three carries this season. He can be left on the waiver wire.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 08:23:00 AM

Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 5.

It's an upgrade from the last several weeks, where Carey was listed as doubtful. Carey should not pose a significant threat to Jordan Howard's workload, but he would give the Bears a viable No. 2 back, upgrading on Joique Bell.
Fri, Oct 7, 2016 01:47:00 PM

Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) got in a limited practice Thursday.

He was also limited Wednesday. It is a step in the correct direction after missing all of last week. Carey will likely be listed a questionable on Friday, but he looks on track to play. He could steal a touch or two from Jordan Howard, but the rookie is the unquestioned lead back in Chicago.
Thu, Oct 6, 2016 05:19:00 PM

Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

Jordan Howard will be the Bears' every-down back against Detroit.
