Michael Bush injury update: Fantasy status questionable due to ailing ribs

Jonathan Daniel

Michael Bush is questionable for the Bears for Week 15 against the Packers due to a ribs injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Michael Bush is questionable to play for the Chicago Bears for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers. Bush was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday, and limited Friday due to a ribs injury.

Bush played just two snaps last week against the Minnesota Vikings before aggravating the injury. If he is forced to sit this week, Matt Forte is expected to take on a bigger workload in the running game.

Fantasy Impact: Bush had a similar practice schedule last week and played, but the Bears may err towards caution this time around. Whether Bush plays or not, Forte is the only safe fantasy starter between the two. If Bush does not play, Forte's value should see a bump due to the possibility of more goal-line touches. If Bush plays, he should only be considered a possible Flex option in deeper leagues.
