Bears rely on run game while bringing Trubisky along slowly

The Chicago Bears are leaning heavily on their running game while bringing along rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky slowly.

Trubisky, the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft, attempted 41 passes in two games since taking over for Mike Glennon at quarterback. He threw 16 passes at Baltimore, while the Bears ran 54 times for 231 yards. Jordan Howard finished with a career-high 167 yards and is fourth in the league in rushing.

Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis expects to see a heavy dose of the running game Sunday when the Panthers (4-2) visit the Bears (2-4).
