With Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem on the shelf with injury, the Bears have reportedly signed running back Joique Bell.
I'm told RB Joique Bell is signing with the #Bears.— Rand Getlin (@RandGetlin) September 27, 2016
Bell spent four seasons with the Lions, tallying 2,235 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns from 2012 to 2015. He also added 161 receptions for 1,640 yards and another score.
Bell was released in February as the Lions opted to get younger at the position.
The 220-pound Bell will provide depth for the Bears at yet another position where they've been ravaged by injury. Ka'Deem Carey missed Week 3 with a hamstring injury suffered the previous week, and Langford will reportedly miss four-to-six weeks with an ankle injury suffered Monday night.
That leaves rookie Jordan Howard, who has shown promise in his first three games, and Raheem Mostert on the depth chart.
The Bears host the Lions on Sunday.
Update: Bell tweeted a link to an Instagram photo of him signing his contract with Ryan Pace:
