“I have no idea what the doctor will say,” Dalton said, per Hobson. “No timetable. When he says I’m ready, I’m ready.

Bears

Bears long-time RB Matt Forte said that he can only smile upon looking back at his career in Chicago.

“I’ve been blessed to play here as long as I have,” Forte said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “I’ve enjoyed my time here. I look back on when I first came in and played against legendary people like Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs [and] Charles Tillman — I’ve gotten to play against a lot of those tough defenses that we’ve had and they helped shape my career as a running back by playing against them and learning that way. I can only look back and smile the whole time.

It’s considered likely that the Bears will allow Forte to depart as a free agent in March.

Steelers

  • Aaron Wilson reports that the Steelers worked out Ty Long, Levi Norwood and Phillip Sims on Thursday.
