Herbert’s 643 rushing yards on 108 carries through 10 games rank just outside the top 10 and are the second most by a Bears player behind quarterback Justin Fields (749). The second-year running back has also scored four touchdowns. Herbert suffered a hip injury on the Bears’ final kick return against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. He has returned five kicks for 146 yards this season, and his absence might mean Chicago will go back to rookie Velus Jones Jr. on kickoff returns.
