Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Forte (ankle) has not been practicing. He was injured in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. Michael Bush will start in place of Forte.
Fantasy Impact: This was expected and will be good news for those fantasy owners who own Michael Bush, who should be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy running back option this week against the Rams. Bush has rushed for two touchdowns this season and should be in line for his biggest workload since joining the Bears in the offseason.
