Chicago has announced that Foreman is questionable to return with an ankle injury.
Foreman briefly left today’s game early in the first quarter and appeared to be in significant pain. However, he returned shortly after and scored a rushing touchdown.
With Foreman sidelined, Khalil Herbert — activated from injured reserve (IR) before this week’s game — and rookie Roschon Johnson will handle the Bears’ backfield work. Herbert missed the club’s last five games with a hamstring injury.
Foreman was a healthy scratch earlier this year but took over as Chicago’s RB1 when Herbert and Johnson suffered injuries. He received at least 10 touches in each of the Bears’ last five games, scoring seven TDs during that span.
Fantasy Fallout From Foreman’s Injury
Herbert returned from IR in Week 11 and is set to return to fantasy lineups in Week 12. Johnson is an encouraging rookie, but his development hasn’t been fantasy-friendly up to this point, and he profiles as more of a third-down back.
Herbert should be viewed as an RB2 with a nice volume floor. Justin Fields’ stock improves a little, as Foreman’s injury puts him in a position to drop back more often. He’s a low-end QB1 who still carries a wide range of outcomes but whose ceiling is worth chasing in the right spot.
