The Packers cut running back Knile Davis this week and got James Starks back at practice, but it looks like there will be further changes coming to their backfield corps.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers are expected to sign former Lions and Bears running back Joique Bell on Monday.

Bell played four games for the Bears this season, running three times for six yards. He was a member of the Lions for the four previous seasons and set a career high by running for 860 yards during the 2014 season.

The Packers rank 19th in the league in rushing yards per game and have had a revolving door in the backfield this season. Injuries to Starks and Eddie Lacy have led the team to trade for Davis, elevate Don Jackson from the practice squad and use wide receivers Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb out of the backfield at points.
