Langford's main competition for a roster spot, Ka'Deem Carey, had wrist surgery and will be sidelined about six weeks, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Langford was assumed to be competing with Carey for one of the final roster spots at running back, and with Carey unavailable, that should help Langford's odds of making the regular season roster. However, he'll likely find himself behind Jordan Howard, Tarik Cohen and Bennie Cunningham, so even if he makes the squad, his fantasy value could be very limited.
Langford (ankle) participated in his first full practice of camp Wednesday, WGN's Adam Hoge reports.
Langford had been easing his way back from a sprained ankle, which ultimately kept him sidelined for the Bears' first preseason contest. It's unclear at this point how involved he'll be during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Cardinals, as the Bears may elect to play it safe with the health of their No. 2 running back behind Jordan Howard.
Langford (ankle) isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Broncos, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio reports.
Langford is slowly working his way back from a sprained ankle he suffered in the early days of training camp. In his absence, Benny Cunningham and Ka'Deem Carey should be the next two in behind Jordan Howard, with 2017 fourth-rounder Tarik Cohen and undrafted rookie Josh Rounds to follow -- and likely in that order.
Langford (ankle) is slowly working his way back to action during training camp, Jeff Joniak of Newsradio 780 AM Chicago reports.
Langford went down with a sprained ankle at the beginning of training camp and has yet to return to full practices. Once his ankle heals up, Langford is expected to battle with Ka'Deem Carey and Benny Cunningham for top backup duties at running back, as Jordan Howard is solidified as the starter following an excellent rookie campaign.
Langford sprained his ankle and missed Friday's practice, Brad Biggs on Twitter reports.
No specifics were given as to the severity of the injury, so it's impossible to project how much time he'll miss. Langford's expected to be battling for a roster spot with Ka'Deem Carey, and it certainly would help Langford compete if he recovers quickly.
