News: Forte recorded five carries for six yards and six receptions (on nine targets) for 52 yards during Thursday's loss in Detroit. Impact: Forte was the culprit, at least on the ground, of a pass-heavy game plan, which saw the Bears finish with 48 passes versus eight runs. On the season, he's failed to surpass 40 yards rushing only two other times, and Thursday's six-yard offering was his least productive since a two-yard effort against the Packers on Sept. 25, 2011. Fortunately, his status as a do-it-all threat took form through the air, as he gathered in six balls for the eight instance in 12 games this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Forte ran for 89 yards and two TDs on Sunday. Impact: Forte increased his career total for rushing TDs to 40, passing Hall of Famer Gale Sayers for fourth on the franchise list. Forte, who had five receptions for 23 yards, also joined Hall of Famer Curtis Martin and LaDainian Tomlinson as the only three players with 1,400 or more yards from scrimmage in each of their first seven NFL seasons.

News: Forte had 23 carries for 89 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while adding five catches on six targets for 23 receiving yards Sunday against the Buccaneers. Impact: Forte continues to be the best offensive weapon in Chicago, as he was the only player to accumulate more than 40 yards. He's now gotten 49 rushing attempts in the last two games, while also catching 11 passes on 12 targets for 81 receiving yards, though he's got a very tough matchup in Week 13 against the Lions, who came into Sunday allowing the fifth-fewest passing yards, while giving up the fewest rushing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Forte (non-injury) missed practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Forte's absence is merely a veteran's day off, with 173 carries and 67 receptions on his ledger through 10 games this season. Expect the running back to be unhinged upon his return to drills later this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Forte had 26 carries for 117 rushing yards and six catches on six targets for 58 receiving yards Sunday against the Vikings. Impact: Forte has rushed for over 115 yards in two of the last three games, with one receiving touchdown over that span. He continues to be the most-used offensive player for the Bears and will look to keep his solid play going in Week 12 against the Buccaneers, who are ranked 18th in rushing yards allowed per game this season and 29th in passing yards allowed.(RotoWire, )
