Matt Forte Limited In Practice Again

September 28, 2012 Bears

Matt Forte was limited in the Bears practice on Friday, per Vaughn McClure.

This is the second straight day that he has been limited, but Forte believes that he will have a shot at playing on Monday. We’ll know more tomorrow when the Bears release their final injury report of the week.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte was able to return to the practice field on Wednesday and mentioned that he “thinks he can play Monday,” per Vaughn McClure.

Bears head coach Lovie Smith said that Forte “still has a long way to go,” so Forte’s obviously much more optimistic about his status for Week 4. With Michael Bush a little banged up, Forte could force the team consider playing him against Dallas, but that would require a pretty solid week of practice before it’s even a possibility.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Bears RB Matt Forte will most likely miss at least one more game while he recovers from an ankle injury.

The Bears brought in former Packers RB Ryan Grant for workout on Tuesday, but there’s no guarantee that he will be signed to their roster. A number of teams have shown minimal interest in Grant thus far, but they ultimately decided that they had better in-house options available.

Michael Bush and Kahlil Bell figure to handle the ground game for another week.

Bears head coach Lovie Smith remains hopeful that running back Matt Forte will return to practice following his ankle sprain a little over a week ago, per Brad Biggs.

Smith has mentioned that Forte has made “good progress” in his recovery.

Forte was initially believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain that would have cost him somewhere between four to six weeks, but the Bears got some goods news late last week. It’s hard to say whether or not Forte has a shot of playing against Cowboys a week from today, but it’s at least encouraging that he is expected to return to the practice field this week.
