Matt Forte is likely to miss Week 4 for the Chicago Bears due to an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte will likely miss the Chicago Bears' Week 4 game against the Dallas Cowboys as he recovers from a sprained right ankle, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The Bears are working out former Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant to potentially add depth. If Forte sits, expect Michael Bush and Kahlil Bell to handle the rushing load once again.

Fantasy Impact: Be sure to follow up on Forte throughout the week. The game is on Monday night, giving the running back an extra day to get healthy. If he sits, Bush is once again a viable RB2 option in standard fantasy leagues. He had 18 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown this past weekend against the St. Louis Rams, and has a nice matchup upcoming against a Cowboys defense giving up 4.0 yards per carry this season.
