After undergoing surgery this spring, Howard set a lofty goal for himself as the Bears look to improve on an abysmal 3-13 record.
“I’m definitely trying to be the No. 1 rusher in the league this year,” Howard said.
“This time a year ago, he wasn’t even practicing,” Fox said. “I like where we are right now. We have way more competition, whether it’s at running back or any other position, and he’s better for it.”
Howard was one of the lone bright spots for the Bears last season and after improving his visual acuity, he’ll be expected to contend for a second consecutive Pro Bowl berth.
