Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith provided no additional updates on Monday about the condition of running back Matt Forte and wide receiver Devin Hester. Forte was hurt in the third quarter, when he appeared to get his ankle caught under a pile of Minnesota defenders. He finished with 42 yards on 14 carries and did not return to the game.
Hester, meanwhile, suffered a concussion in the first half and also did not return to the game. Hester did not have a catch on Sunday. The Bears face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13 and will not make a decision about the status of Forte and Hester until later in the week.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will have to wait until Wednesday to get an idea of how injured both players are. Forte is the more pressing concern, as he is one of the team's top two offensive weapons.
Forte, if active, would be a No. 1 fantasy running back against Seattle. Michael Bush's fantasy value would rise if Forte is not able to play in Week 13. Hester would, at best, be a flex play for Week 13 but owners would have a much easier time finding a replacement at his level.
