He pointed to a fourth quarter series when Howard took two handoffs and a screen pass. On one of the carries, the Bears lost five yards.
“That’s hard — we as an offense can’t let that happen,” he said. “I think probably a few more carries is probably the answer to that, but we don’t go into any game saying, ‘You’ve gotta get X amount of runs or X amount of passes.’ We just kinda play it out as is.”
Through two games, 11 NFL players boast more carries than Howard’s 29. Eleven also claim more rushing yards per game than his 58.5, the story said. Strangely, Tarik Cohen has also been limited in his touches, but Howard is averaging 19 touches a game.
