Bears | Matt Forte became stronger during offseason

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte worked hard during the offseason, improving on his lower body and upper body strength, according to running backs coach Tim Spencer on "He made a point to get back and get his body in better shape," Spencer said. Forte was healthy enough to play last year, but was rarely full speed due to injuries. Spencer said the team was looking for Forte to improve on his yards per carry and yards per catch last year, and they feel those will improve this season because Forte will be fresh. "He won't have to take the entire load. He can share it," Spencer said of Forte's role sharing touches with RB Chester Taylor. "Chester will do well, and they can kind of feed off each other," he added.
