Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals but said after the game (via The Chicago-Sun Times) that he couldn't see himself missing the team's final regular-season game against the Detroit Lions. Forte left the stadium in a walking boot after being injured early in the third quarter.
Forte had 12 carries for 88 yards and a touchdown in the first half for the Bears, who will need to win in Week 17 and get some help to reach the playoffs. Kahlil Bell and Armando Allen finished the game at running back.
Fantasy Impact: Forte was having one of his best games of the season before the injury but fantasy owners will now have to wait and see if he can play in Week 17.
The Bears are in must-win mode and will likely give Forte every chance to get healthy enough to play in Week 17.
