The timetable for Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte to return is still uncertain. We break down the fantasy implications.

There is still no timetable for when Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte will be ready, according to Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune. Forte hurt his ankle in last Thursday's loss to the Green Bay Packers but coach Lovie Smith said earlier in the week that the injury was not as serious as first thought. Michael Bush would start if Forte is inactive in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will have to wait and see about Forte as the week goes along. Bush had 14 carries for 54 yards in Week 2 and could see even more work on Sunday if Forte is ruled out. Bush was already a decent flex start because of his goal line work but could be a top fantasy RB this weekend.
