BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- Jeremy Langford had a pretty good tutor to follow last year in Matt Forte. Now he has a big opportunity for the Chicago Bears.Langford came to camp as the front-runner in a stiff competition to replace one of the most successful running backs in franchise history after showing some promise as a rookie last season.Mentally, I feel like Im ready to go, he said Friday. But football, its all a process. Its only the second day of camp and weve been off for a long time. As the camp goes, I will feel a lot better and a lot more confident in knowing the playbook in and out.The Bears are trying to make a jump after finishing last in the NFC North in their first season under coach John Fox and general manager Ryan Pace. They rebuilt their defense and reworked their offensive line. But they also lost two of their most productive players on offense when they traded outspoken tight end Martellus Bennett and decided not to re-sign Forte.The two-time Pro Bowl running back is second in franchise history to Hall of Famer Walter Payton in yards rushing (8,602), receptions (487), yards from scrimmage (12,718), 100-yard rushing games (24) and games with 150 yards or more from scrimmage (25). He was also one of the more popular players in the locker room, someone teammates could turn to for advice about everything from training to football to parenting.But the Bears had a long list of areas to address. They wanted to get younger and they believed they could replace Forte.Langford showed glimpses as a rookie last season that he was capable of handling a heavier load, finishing with 537 yards rushing and 279 receiving while forging his way into the rotation.He was particularly effective in back-to-back wins at San Diego and St. Louis midway through the season while Forte was injured. His 72 yards rushing and 70 receiving against the Chargers turned a few heads and he didnt let up the following week against the Rams. He had an 83-yard touchdown catch and finished with 109 yards receiving to go with 73 yards rushing and a touchdown.I think I can play all three downs, Langford said. Thats what I want to do and prove -- that I am capable of that. But theres a lot of guys in the room that can do it as well.The Bears plan to use a rush-by-committee approach with Langford, KaDeem Carey, Jacquizz Rodgers and fifth-round pick Jordan Howard in order to keep their running backs fresh and take advantage of an opportunity when one of them is playing well.Id like them all to stand out, Fox said. Thats why we build competition. Thats why were here at camp. Not just at the running back position, that would include every position on our football team.Langford sounds determined to show he can be the No. 1 running back, a spot Forte held for eight years. He has worked on becoming a better receiver after the coaches called on him to do just that. He bulked up, adding a few extra pounds, in an effort to handle a greater load and gain a few more yards after being hit.What separates Langford at the moment is his speed and there could be opportunities playing behind what the Bears believe is a more athletic line, particularly on the right side. They moved three-time Pro Bowl pick Kyle Long back to right guard after he filled in at right tackle and brought in veteran right tackle Bobby Massie.The expectations are higher now -- for the Bears and Langford.I welcome them, especially playing in Chicago, he said. They love the Bears.Game notes Fox would not say how much time Long is expected to sit out because of a strained left calf or confirm if he had an MRI. Long missed Fridays practice after he came up hobbling the previous day. Long posted this message on Twitter on Thursday: Im gonna be fine yall. I appreciate the kind words and well wishes. Minor speed bump. ...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Trying to climb to respectability, the Tennessee Titans are at a crucial moment with two games in five days -- both in the AFC South.First, they must end a woeful skid Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, the division rival that has tormented them the most in recent years before they can even worry about Jacksonville in a primetime game on Oct. 27.I think guys know whats at hand, and we know the opportunity that we have coming into the next two games, Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey said.We know the urgency that this organization expects out of us, and the mindset that we need going into the game to make sure we do take advantage of the opportunity.This is only the second time the Titans (3-3) have been at .500 this late in a season since 2011, churning through two coaches, two general managers and a handful of quarterbacks in that span.They got to this point by holding off the winless Browns 28-26 last week and are second in the division.The struggling Colts (2-4) are stuck in the AFC South cellar, having blown a 14-point lead late in regulation of a 26-23 overtime loss in Houston.Against the Titans, Indianapolis has won nine straight and 14 of the past 15.Andrew Luck has never lost to Tennessee, rallying the Colts to their first win, 35-33, last season after an 0-3 start. Luck insists past success will not lead to overconfidence.Theres absolutely zero bearing on what happened the previous year, and even within a season, Luck said. What happened last week, the first time we played the opponent, has zero bearing on the next one.Here are some things to watch from the Colts and Titans:RECORD CHASE: At age 43, the NFLs oldest player is kicking at an uncanny rate. Adam Vinatieri is one of only two players in league history to make more than 40 consecutive field goals and can break Mike Vanderjagts NFL record (42) with two more field goals at Tennessee, a team he has been almost flawless against. Since 2008, Vinatieri is 32 of 34 on field goals against the Titans.RARE COMPANY: Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota ranks second only to Detroits Matthew Stafford (119.3) for passer ratting inside an opponents 20-yard line since the start of the 2015 season with a 113.dddddddddddd8 rating and 22 touchdowns with no interceptions. Luck ranks fourth (109.3) with 18 TD passes and one interception. Mariota also has thrown at least three TD passes in six of his first 18 starts, the fifth quarterback in NFL history to do that. He can join Kurt Warner, Dan Marino and Daunte Culpepper as the only quarterbacks to do that in their first 19 games with three more TDs on Sunday.RECEIVER TROUBLE: Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton has continued playing despite being hobbled by a knee. His teammates havent been as fortunate. No. 2 receiver Donte Moncrief hasnt played since Week 2 because of a fractured shoulder blade. No. 3 receiver Phillip Dorsett couldnt finish last weeks game because of a hamstring injury and No. 4 receiver Quan Bray (ankle) went on injured reserve Tuesday. Starting tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle) also could miss this weeks game. The injuries forced Indy to make a flurry of roster moves Tuesday.TRIPLE THREAT: DeMarco Murray ranks second in the NFL with 698 yards from scrimmage, helping the Titans rank third in the league in averaging 146.7 yards rushing per game. Mariota has run for at least 60 yards in each of his past two games, and rookie Derrick Henry is averaging 4.4 yards per carry off the bench.Its triple-option football, if you will, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said.SACK TIME: The Titans have had six sacks in consecutive games for the first time since 2010. Luck has been sacked a league-high 23 times, and linebacker Brian Orakpo already has matched his sack total for all of last season with seven. If Orakpo adds another Sunday, he would be the first Tennessee player with a sack in six straight games since Jevon Kearse in 2003.---AP Sports Writer Michael Marot in Indianapolis contributed to this report.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Teresa M.
