Bears vs. Broncos: Cordarrelle Patterson ran faster in Week 2 than any player since 2017

In a Week 2 game that's once again been lowlighted by anemic offense from Mitch Trubisky and most of the Chicago Bears, WR Cordarrelle Patterson gave fans a reason to get excited when he took a handoff 46 yards down the sideline in the third quarter.

He nearly outran Broncos defenders to the end zone because of his trademark speed. In fact, his 46-yard run was clocked as the fastest any player has run over the last two seasons.

Patterson's speed shouldn't come as much of a shock. He ran a 4.42 40-yard dash at the 2013 NFL combine and has always been known as a field-flipper on special teams. This was his first splash play as a Bear, and it was a critical moment in the Bears' first touchdown drive of the year.

Injury Report: Trey Burton, David Montgomery, Adam Shaheen all non-participants in practice Thursday

Injury Report: Trey Burton, David Montgomery, Adam Shaheen all non-participants in practice Thursday

As the Bears prepare for a pivotal Week 11 matchup with the Rams, the team's injury report is trending in the wrong direction.

Take a look at the report from Thursday:

David Montgomery (ankle) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday. Trey Burton (calf), Isaiah Irving (quad), Adam Shaheen (foot) and Danny Trevathan (elbow) also didn't practice.

Last Saturday, the Bears signed RB Ryan Nall and LB James Vaughters off their practice squad — potential candidates to see more run with Trevathan likely to miss time and Montgomery's status up in the air.

The Rams reported earlier this week that RT Rob Havenstein, WR Brandin Cooks and DB Darious Williams are all already ruled out for Sunday.
