6'0'' / 235 lbs
Foreman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Chiefs.
The offseason addition will thus be relegated to healthy scratch status for the second consecutive game as rookie Roschon Johnson and change-of-pace back Travis Homer slot in behind Khalil Herbert. The extent of Foreman's regular-season action in a Bears uniform thus far is the 21 snaps he logged in the season-opening loss to the Packers, and his next opportunity to jump back into action comes in a Week 4 home battle against the Broncos next Sunday.

Foreman is a healthy scratch Week 2 against Tampa Bay.
Foreman seemingly started the season as the No. 2 back to Khalil Herbert, but the Bears gave rookie Roschon Johnson an extended look in the second half of Week 1's blowout loss to the Packers, and apparently the team liked what it saw. Chicago will now enter the second week of the season with just three active backs -- Herbert, Johnson and Travis Homer, who is largely a special-teamer. The latest development essentially extinguishes Foreman's fantasy upside for the immediate future.
Forearm is expected to be a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Chicago kept four running backs active for last week's season-opening loss to the Packers, but Forearm looks as though he'll be the odd man out Week 2. After rookie Roschon Johnson impressed with 11 touches (five carries, six catches) for 55 yards Week 1, he's expected to step in as the primary backup to starter Khalil Herbert on Sunday, while Travis Homer likely retains a role as the No. 3 back due to his ability to contribute on special teams. Forearm, who carried five times for 16 yards and added two catches for eight yards in the 38-20 loss to the Packers, could become a regular on the inactive list in the weeks to come if Johnson continues to capitalize on his opportunities and if both the rookie and Herbert are able to stay healthy.
Foreman rushed five times for 16 yards and added two receptions for eight yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers.
Foreman was third among the Chicago running backs in touches, though it's uncertain what impact the blowout loss had to do with the distribution of work. Regardless, each of the three backs had between seven and 12 touches. It won't be surprising if the allocation of touches varies from week-to-week. More information about Foreman's potential workload may be learned in what should be a more competitive Week 2 game at Tampa Bay.
Foreman (chest/ribs) is practicing Thursday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
This confirms that Foreman avoided a serious injury when he left Saturday's preseason matchup with Buffalo to have his chest/ribs evaluated. He didn't reenter the game but did stay on the sideline in uniform joking with teammates, so a quick return to practice isn't surprising. It's hard to project Foreman's role for Week 1 against Green Bay, as Khalil Herbert is the favorite to lead Chicago's backfield while Roschon Johnson and Travis Homer may also get some snaps. Foreman could get double-digit carries or might barely play at all.
Foreman left Saturday's preseason game against the Bills to have his chest/ribs evaluated, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Foreman split snaps with Khalil Herbert prior to his exit early in the second quarter, taking two carries for 11 yards and one catch for 11 yards. The Bears then used Roschon Johnson in the backfield for much of the second quarter, and they'll likely go to Travis Homer and/or Trestan Ebner at some point in the second half. Foreman's injury doesn't seem too serious, as he remained on the sideline with his shoulder pads on and was joking around with teammates.
Foreman had three carries for 12 yards and gathered in his only target for six yards during Saturday's 24-17 preseason loss at Indianapolis.
With Khalil Herbert getting the night off, Foreman was the first Bears running back to receive a touch, followed by rookie fourth-round pick Roschon Johnson (eight touches, 43 total yards) and Travis Homer (six and 17, respectively). The order seems to indicate Foreman is second on the team's RB depth chart, but Foreman's size (6-foot, 235) likely gives him a leg up for short-yardage and goal-line work among the quartet. In any case, he'll have one more chance to make an impression on the coaching staff Saturday, Aug. 26 against the Bills.
Foreman ran for nine yards on three carries in Chicago's preseason game against Tennessee on Saturday.
There's probably not much to take away from Foreman's Chicago preseason debut other than clarity on the point that Khalil Herbert is the starter for the Bears. The depth chart following Herbert is likely a fluid situation, with Foreman the first runner off the bench for now but rookie fourth-round pick Roschon Johnson in an ongoing competition with Foreman to be the first to play after Herbert. Foreman's abilities as an NFL runner are well demonstrated at this point, so there wasn't much reason for Chicago to give him extended run against the Tennessee backups.
Foreman is listed as a second-stringer on Chicago's initial preseason depth chart, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Signed to a one-year contract this offseason, the 27-year-old seems to be Khalil Herbert's main competition for carries, while rookie Roschon Johnson and fellow free-agent addition Travis Homer are more likely to see playing time on passing downs. A committee of some sort is still the probable outcome, with 235-pound Foreman a candidate to handle goal-line and short-yardage carries even if Herbert (listed as the starter on the initial depth chart) is the lead ballcarrier.
