Running back Matt Forte, who injured his right toe on the Bears' first play from scrimmage last Thursday against New Orleans, was on the sideline at practice this morning at the Walter Payton Center.
Forte came out of the game and was checked out in the locker room before returning. He finished with a season-low 34 yards on 11 carries.
Coach Lovie Smith downplayed the significance of Forte's injury last Friday but the running back canceled a scheduled appearance in the south suburbs on Saturday.
Kyle Orton, who has been battling a right ankle injury for more than a month, was also on the sideline.
Orton was moving fine in the locker room on Monday and has no known issue. We'll see what kind of update Smith provides following practice.
