Bears Place RB Khalil Herbert on Injured Reserve
Khalil Herbert has been placed on injured reserve by the Chicago Bears, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.
The Bears have placed RB Khalil Herbert on IR. He's out for at least four games.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) November 15, 2022
They also waived DE Kingsley Jonathan and claimed DB Justin Layne off of waivers.
Herbert has a hip injury that will keep him shelved for at least the next four weeks. The injury occurred at the end of the Bears’ loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Herbert has been the backup to David Montgomery for most of the season, but an argument could be made that Herbert has been the better back this season. It may not matter, as quarterback Justin Fields has been setting the league on fire the past couple of weeks with his running ability. The Bears may not have much of a passing game, but their rushing attack is quickly becoming one of the best.
The Bears are three-point underdogs (-104) versus the Atlanta Falcons this week and are +144 on the moneyline. The game has an over/under of 50.5, over (-108), and under (-112). You can find the lines and props for this game and all others on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
