SHARE RB Kahlil Bell expects Bears to sign him to 53-man roster

No move is official yet, but running back Kahlil Bell said he expects to be signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster before Sunday’s game with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Bell has been on the practice squad for more than two months, and he’s up to speed on the offensive playbook and as importantly the role on special teams he would play, if he is active for the game.

“If the opportunity comes for me, I’m comfortable,” he said. “I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on everything. Special teams-wise, we have a high standard here, and I think I’m pretty good in that area. Whatever they ask me to do, if I get that opportunity, I am just going to try to help the team.”

An opening on the roster was created this morning when the Bears placed running back Garrett Wolfe on injured reserve with a lacerated kidney. Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa remains out for the season with a knee injury but is still on the 53-man roster.
