As expected, the Bears have placed running back Michael Bush on injured reserve, with a rib injury.
And they’ve replaced him with the running back who became less relevant with Bush’s arrival via free agency: Kahlil Bell.
Bell was No. 3 on the depth chart in 2011, behind Matt Forte and Marion Barber. Bell rushed for 337 yards in 2011, with one start.
Bell spent some time with the Jets this season after being cut by the Bears.
