Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is believed to have a high ankle sprain, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Forte's ankle was rolled up on by Green Bay's Charles Woodson in the third quarter of Thursday night's game. Forte was taken for X-rays and Michael Bush took over at running back.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should hear more today and early next week about Forte, who had 80 total yards on 11 touches in the 23-10 loss to the Packers. The injury, for now, boosts the value of Bush, who had 54 yards on 14 carries. This is the reason the Bears signed Bush and a good example of why fantasy owners should have insurance for running backs taken early in drafts.
