Bears | Marion Barber returns
Chicago Bears RB Marion Barber III (calf) put up 17 rushing yards on five carries and added a three-yard touchdown in his first game of the season against the Carolina Panthers in Week 4. "We've been wanting to have this group together," head coach Lovie Smith said. "We saw what it could look like in training camp, which is pretty good. Matt Forte is a great player. But you need a relief hitter, a solid backup to come in and give you tough yards. That's what Marion did for us (Sunday) and hopefully we'll keep that combination going."
