Chicago Bears could turn to Kahlil Bell in short yardage situations

US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Beard could turn to recently signed running back Kahlil Bell in short yardage situations with Michael Bush on injured reserve.

The Chicago Bears will consider using recently signed running back Kahlil Bell in short yardage situations against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. When asked about using Bell in that role, offensive coordinator Mike Tice would not comment one way or the other, but said "that's certainly a possibility."

With Michael Bush placed on injured reserve with a rib injury, the Bears are in need of a new goal line back. Last week against the Packers, starting running back Matt Forte was given the ball three times from inside the five-yard line, but failed to score.

Bell has bounced on and off the Bears roster all season. He was first waived in preseason, but then resigned on Sept. 15, and cut once again after one month on the roster. Bell was signed by the New York Jets on Nov. 13, but waived on Dec. 11. The Bears signed Bell for the third time this season on Tuesday when they placed Bush on injured reserve.
