Kendre Miller Returns From Seven-Game Absence, Leads Team In Rushing

Sunday, January 7, 5:18 PM

New Orleans Saints running back Kendre Miller missed a good chunk of the season with an ankle injury but returned to action for the first time since Week 9 to split backfield work with Jamaal Williams. Miller carried the ball 13 times for a team-high 73 yards and the first touchdown of his career. He also caught a pass for six yards. The rookie out of TCU was effective in his first time carrying the load and could carve out a role in the backfield heading into 2024.

Roschon Johnson News

Matt Eberflus Lauds Roschon Johnson's Development

Tuesday, February 27, 4:26 PM

On the podium at the 2024 NFL Combine, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said he "loves where Roschon Johnson is in his development." This was in response to a question about Johnson's potential prospects of being the team's lead back in 2024. The former Texas Longhorn rushed 81 times for 352 yards and two touchdowns and caught 34 passes for 209 yards in his rookie season after being selected in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. 25-year-old ball-carrier Khalil Herbert remains on the roster, while veteran D'Onta Foreman is a free agent. While Eberflus' comments are a good sign, it's far too early to project Johnson's potential workload. With a strong free agent and underrated rookie running back class available this offseason, the organization could easily add to its running back room.
