Bears | Matt Forte likely to play in Week 5

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (ankle) is expected to play in the team's Week 5 game. Forte is dealing with some ankle soreness but made it out of Week 4 in relatively good shape, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Offensive coordinator Mike Tice feels Forte will get stronger moving forward. "Someone fell on his ankle on the first play, and you're like, 'Oh, great.' But he bounced back and fought through it," Tice said. "He's just going to continue to get better, and then we'll be able to do all the things we want to do."
