The Bears have agreed to a deal with running back Joique Bell on Tuesday, the veteran announced via Instagram.

The former Detroit Lions running back was brought in to be a veteran presence as starter Jeremy Langford is expected to miss four to six weeks with an ankle injury sustained in Sunday night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Bell, 30, has rushed for 2,235 career yards and has a 4.0 yards per carry average. He’s also caught 161 passes for 1,640 yards and has 23 career touchdowns.
