Running back Brandon Minor from the University of Michigan went undrafted and signed with the Bears almost immediately after the draft this season.

Minor led Michigan in rushing last season with 502 yards (5.2 per carry) and eight touchdowns, and finished his career with 1,658 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Unfortunately, the 6-0, 214-pound runner injured his left shoulder when Michigan scored its first touchdown against Purdue in 2009, but he was able to bounce back and finish the season strong.

Brandon Minor played alongside Colts RB Mike Hart at Michigan for two years at Michigan. Now Minor gets a chance to play in the NFL.

Minor will be fighting for a roster spot behind Matt Forte, Chester Taylor, Garrett Wolfe and Kahlil Bell.

This week I had the chance to speak with Brandon about what he had to do to make the team and what the Bears coaches and players have taught him so far.

Here's the interview, exclusively on Bearsbacker.com.
