GREAT NEWS: Matt Forte returns to practice
LINK to the article Matt Forte returns to practice Chicago Bears
running back Matt Forte
, who sprained his ankle Sept. 13 in a loss against the Green Bay Packers
, returned to practice on Wednesday and said he hopes to face the Dallas Cowboys
on Monday night.
"I didn't really swell up in the ankle," Forte said, "so that's the big part.
When you have an ankle injury when the swelling is big, takes a long time to get it out. But I didn't really swell up, so I felt like I'd be back pretty soon." Michael Bush
was banged up Sunday while starting for Forte. The Bears nearly signed Ryan Grant
, who ended up signing with the Washington Redskins
. Gabe Carimi
missed practice Wednesday because of Yom Kippur, and Julius Peppers
also sat out practice.
