Bears Coach Lovie Smith Says Matt Forte Does Not Have A High Ankle Sprain
Chicago Bears fans and fantasy owners around the world you might be able to breathe a little easier.
Forte was injured Thursday night in the Bears ugly 23-10 loss to the Packers.
“Matt did go down with an ankle injury. It’s not a high ankle sprain, as has been reported,” Smith said on WBBM (780-AM). “But right now, you know when you don’t finish the game and he still has some soreness, we’ll continue to monitor it, but we felt we needed another running back here, that’s why we brought back a guy who knows our system and has played good ball for us in Kahlil Bell.”
So basically that six-week prognosis can now be shortened to about 2-3 weeks max.
