    Matt Forte Injury: Bears RB Out For Week 3

    Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte (right ankle) is out for the teamís Week 3 game against the St. Louis Rams, according to a report from Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. Forte did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday after he suffered an ankle injury during the second half of Chicago's Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Here is Dickerson's very clear declaration that Forte won't play against the Rams:

    Yeah, but kinda offset with our not having (more than likely) Jackson...

    It is huge... but this is why they picked up Bush for just this reason. He's a brute between the tackles, so it'd be nice if somehow, someway we could just duct tape Brockers together enough to get in there and shut him down.
    I believe!

    SJ is a game time decision, I think he plays. Bush is very good but I would rather face Bush then both of them.

    Becareful what you wish for. Bush is no slacker. He may not be as good as Forte out of the backfield as a reciever but what he does he does well. That is run between the tackles and hard to bring down.

    Lets hope the Rams bring the Intensity we've seen in week 1 and 2 without the personal fouls.

    Go Rams

    That's what she said!

    *ahem*

    In all seriousness, losing a weapon like Forte is a big blow to their offense, but I wouldn't underestimate Bush. I really thought he'd opt to go somewhere as a free agent and start this year, with Cincinnati being a prime location.

    I agree with your point that you'd rather face the back-up alone than both he and the starter, though.

    I rather have Bush in than Forte, but they better not sleep on him either. No one knew DeMarco Murray last year till he ran all over us.
