LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Bears fans have been clamoring for rookie running back Jordan Howard to get more reps.

Looks like their wish may come true, but it comes at a hefty price.

According to Adam Schefter, Jeremy Langford could miss up to 4-6 weeks with a sprained ankle.

Some had speculated Langford tore his achilles.

John Fox dispelled those rumors today saying it was just a sprain.

Before being taken into the locker room on a cart in the third quarter of Sunday night’s game, Langford carried the ball three times for 31 yards bringing his season total to 116 yards.
