Forte practices again in tuneup for Monday night; McBride questionable

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

Running back Matt Forte (toe) practiced again Saturday morning in the Walter Payton Center as the Bears had a final tuneup for Monday's meeting with the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field. They'll need to have their ground game going as temperature at kickoff could hover around 10 degrees.

The Bears have won nine consecutive home games when the temperature at game time has been 32 or below. The only loss in the Lovie Smith era when it's been that cold at home was to Houston in 2004.

Cornerback Trumaine McBride, who has taken on a valuable role on special teams as a gunner, is questionable. He pulled a quad muscle in practice on Friday and was added to the injury report today. He did not practice. Candidates to replace him if he is unable to go could include running back Kevin Jones, who made a big impact in his special teams debut last week.

Nice to see Forte should be a full go, my Bears need him and so does my fantasy team for the championship game!

I agree, My Fantasy team also needs him, Go Forte, Best rookie of the season!

It's all down to Forte. My fantasy championship ends tonight with him. I'm 13 points away from the trophy. Come on Matt!!!!!

I need 5.5 fantasy points from Forte for the Championship! C'MONNNN!

As long as Forte doesn't blow up (150 yds, 2 TDs), the championship's all mine!
