Khalil Herbert Trending Towards Activation, has Realistic Shot to Play Week 11

In other NFC North running back news, Khalil Herbert is officially practicing in full as he awaits his activation from injured reserve. While the Bears are technically able to hold Herbert out for one more week, all signs have been pointing in practice to Herbert taking the field once again this Sunday against the Lions. Fellow RB D’Onta Foreman is also dealing with a minor ankle injury, which could help tip the volume scales in Herbert’s favor should he be ready to go in Week 11. As strong as Herbert looked early in the season (he handled 72% of snaps in Weeks 4-5), it’s clear that D’Onta Foreman - who was largely an afterthought earlier this season - has played himself into a split for work with Herbert moving forward. Assuming that both running backs are good to go against Detroit, they’ll rank very closely to each other as back-end RB3s in a tough divisional matchup.
