Forte: Toe "feels good"

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Matt Forte said his injured right toe has improved to the point where he will not be thinking about it come game time Monday night.

Maybe he will not be able to feel it. The temperature at game time is expected to hover around 10 degrees.

Forte, who is questionable on the injury report, practiced again Saturday morning in the Walter Payton Center as the Bears put the finishing touches on the long layoff they have had since last playing New Orleans Dec. 11.

"That's the most important thing is don't think about it, because then you don't worry about it and you're not trying to protect it,'' Forte said. "So don't worry about it and just go out there and just play. It feels good.''

Cornerback Trumaine McBride, who tweaked a quad muscle Friday, is questionable and he is expected to be available.

For Green Bay, Charles Woodson is expected to move back to his natural position of cornerback. He has been playing safety recently but Aaron Rouse will return there. Rouse had struggled previously but is getting another opportunity. Third-down back Brandon Jackson (wrist) is expected to miss the game with DeShawn Wynn replacing him. Ryan Grant could get more action on third down. Fullback Korey Hall (knee) will not play and John Kuhn will get the work there.
