Meet Chuck Bruce, the Legendary Alter Ego of the Bears’ Newest Running Back

Chicago Bears

When the Chicago Bears traded up to draft David Montgomery in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, they had an idea what they were getting in a top-ranked college running back prospect. What they didn’t know is that they also signed up to bring aboard his alter ego …

… Chuck Bruce.

On the field, David Montgomery is often found running through, over, and around opposing defenders and blazing a path to the end zone. But then there is Chuck Bruce, the alter ego of a mild-mannered Iowa resident aiding cleanup efforts after a tornado in Marshalltown, Iowa. The legend was unmasked by’s Keith Murphy, who describes Chuck Bruce as “Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee scissor-kicked each other in the head, and Chuck Bruce appeared in a puff of smoke.”

Yeah, combining Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee would make for one heck of a bad-ass figure.

We’re not sure when Chuck Bruce will re-surface again, but it could be at any time or in any place. Stay tuned.
