Matt Forte expected to suit up for Bears vs. Cowboys

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Chicago Bears will reportedly have running back Matt Forte back in the lineup against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night after Forte suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2.

Chicago Bears' running back Matt Forte will make his return to the Chicago backfield on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys, according to a report by Jay Glazer. The report says that Forte, who was previously considered a game-time decision, will be dressed and is expecting to play on Monday night.

Forte has not played since he was injured in the Bears' Week 2 loss against the Green Bay Packers. Forte suffered a high ankle sprain in the third quarter of that game against Green Bay and missed Chicago's Week 3 win over the St. Louis Rams.

Before suffering the injury, Forte had carried 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown. The running back has also caught seven passes for 89 yards thus far in 2012.

The Bears and Cowboys, who are both 2-1 on the season, kick off at 8:30 p.m. ET from Cowboy Stadium. The Monday Night Football game can be seen on ESPN.
