Jeremy Langford hopes to be a three-down back this season.

"I think I'm definitely getting better at that," Langford said of being a three-down back. "Just really playing through contact and catching the ball when I get the opportunity to do so. And just showing my pass-blocking ability, which I haven't had the chance that much in the preseason so far. I think I'm making strides toward that real good." With fifth-round rookie Jordan Howard failing to make a push on early downs, Langford should get his wish to begin the season, making him a solid RB2.

Jeremy Langford (foot) has resumed practicing in full.

Langford's absence lasted less than a week. He should suit up for Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal.

Bears NT Eddie Goldman said he feels "faster" this season.

Goldman lost some weight this offseason, and he thinks it has translated to the field. "I didn’t play a full game yet so I can’t really judge myself," Goldman said. "But I can tell you that I feel faster, quicker." After a strong rookie season, the Bears are counting on Goldman to anchor their run defense.

Jeremy Langford (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Langford appears to be questionable at best for the Bears' regular season dress rehearsal, but this is a step in the right direction after his foot was stepped on in Chicago's second preseason game, and Langford spent the next day in a walking boot. All signs still point to this being a minor "injury".
Aug 24 - 3:35 PM

The Chicago Tribune reports RG Kyle Long has missed the Bears' last three practices with a "labrum issue" in his shoulder.

One source the Tribune spoke to was "not optimistic about the situation," while another source (presumably Long's agent) "was confident Long would return for Week 1. The Bears already lost starting C Hroniss Grasu to a year-ending ACL tear. Coach John Fox was predictably vague when asked about Long's timetable for return. "It doesn't really matter what I think," Fox said. "There are medical people involved and when he's cleared, he'll play."

Jeremy Langford (foot) remained sidelined Tuesday.

Langford has already shed his walking boot, but the Bears aren't forcing the issue. If Langford remains sidelined Wednesday, he's going to start looking shaky for Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal against the Chiefs.

Alshon Jeffery said Kevin White needs to be more physical on the field.

"I just told him to play physical because he's big, he's strong and he's fast," Jeffery said. "[WRs] coach Curtis Johnson reminds him of that all the time." White has had a lackluster preseason, catching just two passes for nine yards, but he has managed to stay on the field after missing all of his rookie season with a stress fracture in his shin. That practice time has certainly aided in his development, and Jeffery said the sophomore is "taking coaching well." White might not come out of the gates on fire as the No. 2 to Jeffery, but he has a ton of upside.

Jeremy Langford shed his walking boot at Bears practice on Sunday.

Langford didn't participate in practice, but it's clear the boot was purely precautionary after Langford got "stepped on" in the Bears' second preseason game. Langford's status for next week's regular season dress rehearsal is unclear. He's shaping up as an enticing fantasy pick in the fifth and sixth rounds.
Aug 21 - 5:48 PM

Bears coach John Fox said Jeremy Langford (foot) was "landed on" in Thursday's preseason game.

Langford was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left foot at Saturday's practice. "He got sore after the game," Fox said. "You can call [sitting him] precautionary, but it's just doing what's smart." It does not sound like Langford is dealing with a serious injury, but the boot is certainly concerning. Langford has worked as the clear-cut No. 1 back throughout the preseason.

Eddie Royal (concussion) has resumed practicing.

Royal missed over two weeks. The ninth-year pro has had trouble staying on the field since he signed with the Bears in 2015.
Aug 20 - 6:40 PM

Jeremy Langford was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot at Saturday's practice.

There were not any reports of an injury following his 55-yard performance in Thursday's preseason game, and beat writers did not have any updates at the start of practice. Coach John Fox will certainly be asked about the boot after practice, but he is not always forthcoming when it comes to injuries. While the boot is concerning, it is possible the Bears are simply being proactive with a minor issue. Langford has been working as the clear No. 1 back.
Aug 20 - 6:36 PM

Bears coach John Fox said Jeremy Langford "made a step forward" in Thursday's preseason game.

He might be underselling it. Langford was terrific Thursday against New England, totaling 55 yards and a touchdown on eight carries. The Bears promised a "hot hand" approach at running back earlier this offseason but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Langford is clearly Chicago's bellcow and may end up being a bargain at his current ADP.
Aug 19 - 3:43 PM

Bears coach John Fox revealed Thursday that CB Kyle Fuller recently underwent a knee scope.

Fox called Fuller "week to week," but this could jeopardize his Week 1 status. The Bears are dangerously thin at corner behind Tracy Porter, and inexperienced at safety with sophomore Adrian Amos and special teamer Harold Jones-Quartey projected to start. The 14th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Fuller has been a disappointment through two seasons. There's been buzz at Bears camp that Fuller could lose his job to fourth-round rookie Deiondre' Hall.

Kevin White caught 1-of-3 targets for six yards in the Bears' second preseason game against the Patriots.

White did a good job coming back to the ball on a curl route for his lone grab, but he later committed a bad drop when lined up on the left side of the formation. As noted by Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris, White never played on the left side in college, as he strictly lined up wide right. While reports have been glowing on White much of the practice season, he still has plenty to learn.
Aug 18 - 11:01 PM

Jeremy Langford rushed eight times for 55 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' second preseason game against the Patriots.

Through two preseason games, Langford has operated as the Bears' clear-cut No. 1 back. He handled every snap with the first-team offense in the exhibition opener, and did so again tonight before being replaced by Jacquizz Rodgers deep into the second quarter when Brian Hoyer came in at quarterback. Langford's rushing line was pumped up by a 34-yard gain, but he looked explosive with his cuts, and the offseason weight-gain hasn't slowed him down. Langford is cementing himself atop the depth chart and looks like he may open the year in an every-down role.
