Khalil Herbert Returns from IR Week 11

Bears RB Khalil Herbert returns from 5 weeks out on IR for week 11 vs Lions.

Chicago Bears running back Khalil Herbert has been taken off the IR list and is set to play on Sunday following a full practice on Thursday, as confirmed by head coach Matt Eberflus.

 

Herbert will be rejoining fellow running backs Roschon Johnson and D’onta Foreman in the backfield, alongside the return of QB Justin Fields. This lineup, which presented a formidable defense against division rivals the Detroit Lions, sees Khalil back in action after initially leading the backfield earlier in the season. However, with Foreman and Roschon delivering strong performances, and the latter serving as the designated pass-catching back, it remains intriguing to observe how this group of running backs will perform.

 

From a fantasy perspective, considering Khalil for a flex position could be a viable option, though expectations should be tempered. The dynamics of this backfield are still unfolding, and there’s the lingering concern of potential re-injury. While the Bears remain in the last place for a reason, the return of key players like Herbert offers a glimmer of hope for improvement.
