Chicago Bears running back Jeremy Langford practiced Tuesday after missing the past four games with an ankle injury, according to multiple reports.

The Bears will play on Monday Night Football, so Langford will have an extra day to prepare should he make his way back from the high ankle sprain this week.

With the release of Joique Bell on Monday, it seems the Bears are expecting to have Langford back sooner rather than later.

In Langford’s absence, rookie fifth-rounder Jordan Howard has taken most of the workload, but split touches with Ka’Deem Carey in Week 7.

The Bears are also expecting quarterback Jay Cutler back this week after sustaining a thumb injury in Week 2.
