Matt Forte's injury in spreading panic among the world of fantasy owners. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte was having a solid night for the Bears until one of his ankles was rolled up under a defender on the field, causing he to leave for the rest of the matchup. Forte have 31 yards rushing and 49 receiving yards when he exited the field.

Fantasy Impact: X-rays were set to be taken in the locker room once Forte headed back, so it likely won't take long for owners to found out the actual impact of this injury. For now, though, Michael Bush remains the top runner in Chicago until Forte can prove he's healthy enough to play. Hopefully you grabbed Bush is you drafted Forte in the earlier rounds. Check back soon to see the full status of his injury.
