Bears | RB Notes

The team's official site reports Chicago Bears RB Marlon Barnes is expected to start this weekend's pre-season game in place of James Allen (strained hip flexor). Barnes and RB Skip Hicks are slated to split time in the first half Saturday against the Titans, with Hicks and Brian Edwards sharing the workload in the second half. Rookie Anthony Thomas is out with a sore right knee. If Allen remains sidelined for any considerable length of time, Barnes could be battling Hicks for the starting job rather than the No. 2 position.
