Former Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey scores touchdown for Bears

Former Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey scores touchdown for Bears

CHICAGO (AP) - Tucson's own Ka'Deem Carey's #25 jersey just got a little more popular on Thursday night.  The former Arizona running back had 36 yards on 13 carries, adding a 1 yard touchdown for the Chicago Bears.  

Chad Henne passed for 130 yards and a touchdown, and Blake Bortles threw for 160 in relief before backup quarterback Jordan Palmer rallied the Bears to a 20-19 preseason victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

Palmer, trying to beat out Jimmy Clausen for the No. 2 job, led Chicago to two fourth-quarter touchdowns. Senorise Perry scored on a 5-yard run with 50 seconds left, and C.J. Wilson intercepted a pass to seal the win after Henne and Bortles picked the Bears apart.

Jared Allen made his first appearance for Chicago. The star offseason acquisition finished with one tackle for a loss on an otherwise quiet night. He sat out last week's preseason-opening win over Philadelphia after he missed practices because his wife had a baby.

Henne showed mobility in the pocket and completed 12 of 17 passes before leaving with a 13-7 lead in the second quarter.
