Former Bears running back Kahlil Bell is indeed current Bears running back Khalil Bell again.
The Bears have announced that Bell is back with the team.
Safety Jeremy Jones has been waived to create a roster spot for Bell, who was cut in August after refusing to reduce his base salary.
Bell provides depth behind Michael Bush, given that Matt Forte could miss two-to-six weeks with a high ankle sprain. Armando Allen is the other running back on the roster.
Bell visited with the Patriots during his free agency (which veteran with a recognizable name hasn’t?). The former UCLA Bruin rushed for 121 yards on 23 carries in a 35-21 loss to the Packers last Christmas night.
