Khalil Herbert (back) expected to play in Bears' Week 18 game

The Chicago Bears are expected to have running back Khalil Herbert (back) available for their Week 18 game against the Green Bay Packers.

What It Means:

Herbert was concerningly a late-week addition to the Bears' injury report, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the talented rusher is expected to suit up against the Packers. Herbert has been the team's RB1 over the past two weeks without D'Onta Foreman and should resume that role this week as long as he's healthy.

If he does suit up, our models project Herbert for 9.9 fantasy points against the Packers, with 53.8 rushing yards, 12.8 receiving yards, and 0.4 touchdowns. FanDuel has set his salary at $7,000.
