CLEVELAND -- Because only three running backs are expected to make the Bears final-53 man roster, Garrett Wolfe's tenure in Chicago may be over.
"It's something I totally can't control," Wolfe said after the preseason finale. "Ever since I've been here, I've worked hard and tried to make the most of every single opportunity. I'll go in with no regrets and know I did everything within reason that I could possibly do every time I got an opportunity. I felt like over my time here, I've done everything possible to show them what type of player I am. If it works out, I'd love to be here, if not, it's out of my control."
Wolfe only carried the ball three times for zero yards against the Browns, while catching two of the three passes sent his way. His competition, Khalil Bell, received substantially more work, finishing the game with a team-high 12 rushing attempts.
If Wolfe is cut, it would mark the end of his ties to the Chicago market, which began in high school at Holy Cross, then continued at Northern Illinois before the Bears selected the speedster in the third round of the 2007 NFL draft.
"Being a Chicago kid and coming home, a lot is expected of you," Wolfe said. "Everybody wants and needs something, but this is an opportunity that I've enjoyed. It's something I wouldn't want to happen any other way."
