The Bears have signed Kahlil Bell to a one-year contract, bringing back the running back with Matt Forte's status uncertain.

Forte left Thursday's loss to Green Bay with what several outlets reported was a high right ankle sprain. Bell, who was waived last month, played 20 games for the Bears over three seasons and made three starts, including the final two last year. He ran for 557 yards on 119 attempts and also caught 20 passes for 137 yards and a TD during that time.

Besides signing Bell, the Bears waived safety Jeremy Jones on Saturday.
