The Chicago Bears are hoping running back Matt Forte will practice this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chicago Bears are hopeful running back Matt Forte will return to practice this week, coach Lovie Smith said on Monday. Forte did not play in Sunday's win over the St. Louis Rams after injuring his ankle in Week 2. Michael Bush started for the Bears, rushing for 55 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. The Bears play the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact: Hopeful is probably the right word when it comes to Forte for next week but fantasy owners will want to monitor injury reports later in the week to see where he stands. Michael Bush is a solid fantasy option if Forte doesn't play and could still see work around the goal line if he does.
