Bears RB D’Onta Foreman believes he ‘left yards out there’ in loss

8 months agoJake Mozarsky

Though the Bears lost to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon, they might have found a short-term solution for the rushing attack in D’Onta Foreman. 

In the absence of Khalil Herbert – who was placed on Injured Reserve earlier this week with an ankle injury – Foreman took on the starting running back role, with 15 carries for 65 yards. As a team, Chicago ran for 162 yards on 36 attempts, as opposed to the Vikings who only had 46 yards on the ground. 

Foreman thought he could have done more. 

“I feel like I left some yards out there,” Foreman said to Jeff Joniak on The Official Bears Postgame Live presented by United Airlines. “I definitely have to go watch the film, clean up some stuff and figure out how I can be better in the moment.” 

The veteran running back has been inactive since Week 1, but with injuries to Herbert, Roschon Johnson and Travis Homer, he was back in the lineup against Minnesota. Foreman wanted to make an impact early on. 

“I knew we needed to come out and try to start fast,” Foreman said. “I think even my first run of the day was a shoestring tackle that I could have probably made a bigger run. So, it’s just finding a way of how I can be better in the moment.” 

Foreman also liked what he saw from backup quarterback Tyson Bagent, who entered the game after Justin Fields went down with a hand injury. 

“Tyson was Tyson,” Foreman said. “Tyson was somebody who we knew he was going to be that type of guy. He came in, he commanded the huddle really well, was able to get guys lined up and tried to rally us back and get a win.” 

With Herbert out for a few more weeks, Forman could have a similar role for the Bears moving forward depending on the health status of the rest of the backfield.
