The Bears are expected to add running back Lamar Miller to the practice squad, as Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. Miller will provide Chicago with some much-needed depth in the wake of Tarik Cohen‘s season-ending injury.
Miller signed a one-year deal with the Patriots earlier this summer, roughly one year after he tore his ACL during the Texans’ preseason. He wasn’t able to stick in New England, but he’s reportedly healthy and ready to go.
Miller earned Pro Bowl nod during his last healthy season in 2018, rushing for five scores and 973 yards on 210 carries (4.6 yards per carry) with the Texans. He also added 25 receptions for 163 receiving yards and one touchdown during that season.
The Bears deal reunites Miller with Charles London, his former RBs coach in Houston, and Bill Lazor, his old offensive coordinator in Miami. Both coaches know what Miller is capable of, as he notched 1,000-yard seasons for both the Texans and Dolphins.
