Bears don’t expect Matt Forte (knee) to miss rest of season

The Bears have not yet announced a timetable for Forte’s return, nor have they announced anything conclusive about the nature of his injury. The team would certainly like him back as soon as possible, as he’s Chicago’s main generator of offense (109.6 total yards per game). The soon-to-be 30-year-old running back should have a mutual interest to bounce back, since he’s in a contract year.
