For the second week in a row, Chicago Bears tailback Khalil Herbert has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week. In Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, Herbert ran for 124 yards on 18 carries (6.9 avg.) and one touchdown in Chicago’s 37 to 17 win.

Voting is open until Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. CT at NFL.com/FedEx each week of the season. Fans can also vote on Twitter via the @NFL published polls and on the NFL Mobile App, so in true Chicago fashion, vote early and vote often!

Also nominated this week was Pittsburgh running back Najee Harris, who rushed for 122 yards on 27 carries (4.5 avg.) and two touchdowns in their win against Seattle, and Arizona’s James Conner, who had 128 rushing yards on 26 carries (4.9 avg.) and one touchdown in their upset of the Eagles.

Through the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards, FedEx will once again make a $2,000 donation in the names of the winning quarterback and running back ($4,000 total) to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) all season long.
