Fantasy owners who started Bears running back Matt Forte today against the Cardinals were pretty pleased with his output -- 95 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. But it could have been so much more. Forte had to leave the game for good during the third quarter due to a right ankle injury. According to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, Forte was wearing a walking boot over his injured foot in the locker room after the 28-13 win. Kahlil Bell and Armando Allen stepped in to fill the void, combining for 56 rushing yards on 18 carries.
Bell got 13 carries, so he seems to be the guy to watch during the week if Forte can't play next Sunday versus the Lions. And considering that Forte has been dealing with right ankle problems all season long and is in a boot, it appears likely that he won't be active for that game.
