Sept. 5 (UPI) — Former Chicago Bears running back Jeremy Langford is now a member of the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad.
The Bears waived Langford on Sunday. The fourth round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft had 200 yards and four touchdowns on 62 carries last season. He had 148 carries for 537 yards and six scores in 2015.
A source informed ESPN of the Langford signing.
Langford, 25, was sidelined in camp in August with an ankle injury. The Ravens currently have Terrance West, Buck Allen and Danny Woodhead on their depth chart at the position. Langford failed to top 57 rushing yards in 12 games last season. He had 29 yards on 10 carries in the last week of preseason.
The Bears also claimed wide receiver Tre McBride from the Tennessee Titans and long-snapper Andrew DePaola from the Buccaneers off of waivers Sunday. Chicago waived tight end Ben Braunecker and long-snapper Jeff Overbaugh. Braunecker joined the team’s practice squad on Monday.
Running back Taquan Mizzell, who was claimed off of waivers from the Ravens, took Langford’s roster spot for the Bears.
The Bears had the No. 17 rushing offense last season while the Ravens ranked No. 28 in that category. Baltimore also had the third-fewest rushing attempts in the NFL last season.
