Shaun Draughn RB CHI 2 Days

Draughn was released by the Bears on Tuesday.

Draughn did not see any work in the Bears' first two games, and his release indicates the team is confident that Ka'Deem Carey can handle the backup duties behind Matt Forte.

Draughn hasn't had a carry in either of the Bears' first two regular season contests.

Though it wasn't quite clear to begin the season, it would seem Draughn is viewed as the team's No. 3 back, with Ka'Deem Carey slotting in as the top backup behind Matt Forte. Because Forte rarely comes off the field as an every-down back, however, snaps for both Carey and Draughn will remain minimal barring an injury.

Draughn is listed as the No. 3 running back on the Bears' latest depth chart, the team's official site reports.

We'll monitor the Bears' backup RB workload in Sunday's game against the Bills, but for now Ka'Deem Carey is listed as Matt Forte's top backup and thus appears to be the player to target by those looking to secure Forte insurance.

Draughn had 29 yards on 10 carries and 14 yards on three receptions in Thursday's preseason finale against the Browns.

More important than Draughn's own lack of production is the fact that rookie Ka'Deem Carey didn't play at all. While nothing has been announced, all signs point to Carey opening the season as Matt Forte's top backup. Draughn may now be in danger of losing his roster spot.

Draughn worked as the No. 3 running back in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks, gaining four yards on four carries.

After serving as Matt Forte's top backup in the first two exhibition games, Draughn worked behind fourth-round rookie Ka'Deem Carey, who gained 15 yards on four carries. We can't yet assume that Carey will be second on the depth chart by Week 1, but Draughn's value took a hit Friday night. The Bears can't be feeling too good about their running back depth, and figure to heavily lean on Forte.

Working as the No. 2 running back for a second consecutive game, Draughn gained 33 yards on three carries and 12 yards on two receptions in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars.

Once again, Draughn served as the clear No. 2, with rookie fourth-round draft pick Ka'Deem Carey third into the game, followed by Senorise Perry. While he seems to have the upper hand thus far, Draughn is already 26 years old, and has yet to make an impact in the league. He doesn't match Carey in terms of upside, but may still open the season as Matt Forte's top backup.

Draughn worked as the No. 2 running back in Friday's preseason opener against the Eagles, The Game Chicago's Adam Hoge reports.

Ka'Deem Carey, a fourth-round draft pick, worked as the No. 3, followed by Senorise Perry, Michael Ford, and then finally Jordan Lynch. Draughn recorded one carry for two yards and one reception for 10 yards, while Carey by far handled the biggest workload, carrying 10 times for just 23 yards. Typically, it isn't a good sign if a player sees a ton of playing time in the first preseason game, but given that Carey was used as the No. 3 back, the Bears probably just wanted to get the rookie some work. Despite what the initial depth chart says, Carey looks like the best handcuff for Matt Forte. Even if the Bears decide they don't trust Carey in the backup role, it's hard to imagine a team with such high aspirations for its offense would allow Draughn to occupy a fairly important position.
