Matt Forte's Injury Believed To Be High Ankle Sprain

Chicago Bears star running back Matt Forte left the team's Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers during the third quarter with an ankle injury, and it is now believed that Forte suffered a high ankle sprain, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN. Forte was injured during the team's first series in the third quarter when Charles Woodson rolled up on his ankle after a 14-yard reception. He left the game after compiling 31 rushing yards on seven attempts and 45 yards receiving on four catches. He did not return to the game.

The Bears signed Forte to a four-year deal during the offseason with $18 million in guaranteed money, but they also had the foresight to add former Raiders running back Michael Bush, who will now have to carry the load for the Bears' rushing attack until Forte's ankle heals.

Bears Vs. Packers, Week 2: A Night To Forget For Chicago

A horrid performance from the Chicago Bears offense at Green Bay Thursday night led to the Bears' demise in a 23-10 loss. Quarterback Jay Cutler threw four interceptions and was sacked seven times. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall dropped a sure touchdown pass in the third quarter. Running back Matt Forte was injured and missed a large part of the game.

It was a nightmare scenario come true for the Bears, and one fan on the Bears blog Windy City Gridiron put it in these terms:

"The Packers sucked for a while. The Bears sucked for a hell of a lot longer."

Take a look at the critical tweets of Cutler in the link. He was awful and heard it from the pundits. He somehow manages to have many bad games against the Packers.

Packers Inactives: Greg Jennings, James Starks Missing Vs. Bears

The Green Bay Packers have released their list of inactives for Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears, and Greg Jennings is included, as he'll sit out the Week 2 contest with a groin injury.

Also sitting out will be running back James Starks, who is dealing with a case of turf toe. However, he could be "part of the plan" next week, according to head coach Mike McCarthy (via Packers beat writer Tyler Dunne).

In addition to Jennings and Starks, the Packers will be without WR Jarrett Boykin, S Sean Richardson, DB Davon House, LB Terrell Manning and DE C.J. Wilson.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET from Lambeau Field.

Greg Jennings Injury: Packers WR Inactive For Bears Game

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been listed as inactive for Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears, according to NFL.com's inactives report.

Jennings was listed as doubtful prior to the game, though he still held out hope that he would play. However, the Packers have decided to keep him out, after the star receiver was injured in the Packers' Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Jennings was mostly held in check last Sunday, as he caught five balls for just 34 yards.

Donald Driver will likely get the majority of Jennings' reps, as the veteran receiver replaced Jennings last week following the injury.
