Although Langford is currently the lead running back for the Bears entering training camp, a committee approach appears to be on the horizon, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Head coach John Fox wants to limit the workload of his running backs while employing the hot hand approach, which would make it difficult for Langford to have a role as a feature back. That said, the coaching staff is counting on getting Langford to run with a wider base so he can gain more yards after contact, which if done successfully, could help him see early down work. However, Jacquizz Rodgers, based on his past experience as a third-down back, could hold onto that role for awhile. The upcoming training camp battle at running back will be one to monitor closely.
