The Bears are no stranger to having a player nominated for one of the FedEx Air or FedEx Ground player of the week awards, though this year it’s been Justin Fields getting the nod in the air. This time, it’s D’Onta Foreman on the ground. Foreman has seen minimal use this year, playing in only three games so far. However, he made up for lost time against the Las Vegas Raiders and was instrumental in Chicago ending its homefield losing streak.

On the way to helping UDFA QB Tyson Bagent secure his first win as a starter, Foreman contributed 89 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground to Chicago’s victory (with 120 all-purpose yards and 3 TDs overall). This was only the third game in Foreman’s career that he scored multiple touchdowns, and it was the ninth-highest rushing total he’s managed since being drafted by the Texans in 2017.

Foreman is up against Kenneth Walker of the Seattle Seahawks and Joshua Kelley of the Los Angeles Chargers. Fans of his work can vote for him right here until Wednesday afternoon at 3pm Eastern.
