This blows. Packers may have ended our playoff hopes in one game. :-(

Bears running back Matt Forte could end up missing a month or more because of an ankle injury suffered during Thursday's loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Looking for reinforcements, the Bears are leaning toward re-signing Kahlil Bell, according to a league source -- though the club worked out Steve Slaton, the former Texans and Dolphins back.
Bell was with the Bears in camp and was cut -- because, at least in part, of what was a high salary at the time. Any new deal likely would be closer to the veteran minimum.
With Forte out, Michael Bush becomes the primary ball carrier.
