Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte did not practice on Wednesday, via Tim Twentyman. The Bears tailback was held out of today's session with a bothered ankle.

This is not a good start to the week for Forte, who the Bears will need in a must-win game in Week 17. On Sunday, Chicago will take on Detroit.

Fantasy Analysis: Forte has been a strong fantasy performer when healthy, but he seems to get dinged up quite a bit. If Forte is able to go, the Bears will be sure to activate him. The need to pull out a win against the Lions in order to keep their playoff hopes alive.

If Forte is good to go, he remains a solid play against the Lions -- though he'll probably share carries.
