This comes mere days after the Lions hosted him for a workout last week. Detroit was trying to figure out how to replace Ameer Abdullah, whom the club reportedly fears could be lost for the season with a torn ligament in his foot, and kicked the tires on Bell with a workout. Now Bell will help replace Jeremy Langford who is expected to miss 4-6 week with a bad ankle. The Bears aren't sure of KaDeem Carey's status heading into this week and perhaps didn't want Jordan Howard to carry a large workload. Raheem Mostert was Chicago's only other back.
CHI RB KaDeem Carey - Week 7, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Green Bay
Ka'Deem Carey had more success than Jordan Howard last week, finishing with 50 rushing yards on nine carries. It was the first time all season the Bears gave some attention to the backup. We'll have to wait and see if Chicago utilizes him more, but for now, he's off the fantasy radar in a bad matchup.
