Bears running back Jeremy Langford has a sprained right ankle, coach John Fox said Monday, one day after the Bears’ 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Langford’s injury might be of the more serious high ankle variety, given that he was carted off the Bears sideline in the third quarter.

Fox said the NBC sideline report of an Achilles’ tendon injury— which would be catastrophic — was not true. Langford said Sunday he was unsure about how the nature of his injury.

If Langford has to miss time, the Bears would likely turn to rookie Jordan Howard, their leading rusher Sunday. Ka’Deem Carey is still recovering from a hamstring injury that kept him off the flight to Dallas.

Asked whether he could handle a full starter’s load, Fox said it wouldn’t be impossible.

“I think there’s guys in the league that do,” Fox said. “Remember, Jordan is a rookie that we’ve seen for three real NFL football games. So we’ll kind of evaluate as we move forward. I think it would be kind of not right for me to answer that at this point.”

The Bears’ only other active running back Sunday was Raheem Mostert, “who I don’t think is a household name here in Chicago.” The Bears promoted the Purdue alum from the practice squad last week.
