Bears | Matt Forte never returned from ankle injury

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (ankle) never returned to the team's Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers due to an ankle injury. He went into the locker room for X-rays during the game and didn't return. He finished the game with seven rushing attempts for 31 yards and had a team-high four receptions for 49 yards during the game before his departure. Michael Bush replaced him the rest of the game. Forte's status for Week 3 is unknown at this time.

Fantasy Tip: This situation will have to be watched closely, but Forte has a little extra time to heal before the team's next game. If he cannot play, Bush would serve as the team's No. 1 back and see an increased role along with a higher fantasy value. Stay tuned.
