The Bears have promoted running back Raheem Mostert from the practice squad, as agent Brett Tessler tweets. Mostert was added to the taxi squad just last week, but it didn’t take long for him to get called up to varsity.
Jeremy Langford is the primary back in Chicago, but top understudy Ka’Deem Carey is dealing with a hamstring injury. Now, rookie Jordan Howard moves up a spot on the depth chart with Mostert occupying the No. 3 RB role until Carey gets back.
Mostert, a Purdue product, has been yo-yo’d on and off different NFL rosters since joining the league as a UDFA last year. After contracts with the Eagles, Dolphins, Ravens, Browns, and Jets, Mostert is hoping to find a more permanent home in Chicago. In addition to playing tailback, Mostert could also be a factor in the return game for the Bears.
