Summary

Howard arrived in a big way last season, rushing for over 1300 yards despite starting the season as a backup and playing on one of the losingest teams in the NFL. This year, he won't be on any waiver wires, or even be on the draft board beyond the second round in most drafts. While Howard's passing game role is unlikely to increase greatly from his 29 receptions for 298 yards last year due to the addition of Tarik Cohen and Benny Cunningham, he should get more than 252 carries with a full season as a starter. The Bears aren't going to magically turn into a top team with a poor quarterback situation this year, but there's no reason to think that Howard can't overcome that much in the same manner he did last year. Consider him a high floor low RB1, but one that lacks the ability to break into the top 3-5 backs. (August 13)

Bears | Jordan Howard dealing with eye injury (Fri Aug 18, 07:07 PM) - Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (eye) suffered a corneal abrasion during the team's walkthrough Friday, Aug. 18, and did not travel with the team for their preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Our View: Howard basically got poked in the eye. A painful injury at the time it happens, but it's not one that should keep him out for long. The Bears believe Howard's injury is minor.
