Fantasy Football News – After getting taken out of the game Sunday with what appeared to be an ankle injury, Michael Bush became a hot commodity as he scored twice. Well apparently Forte is feeling ok and practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Not only did he practice but Mike Tice said he looked, “fine.”
FFLockerRoom Take – Forte owners are happy to see him back on the practice field so quickly after getting taken out of the game Sunday. I wonder if he could have come back if the game was closer but I guess that’s why the Bears went and got Michael Bush. Bush is a capable player so there is no reason to rush Forte back. They could have easily let him rest a week if they were worried. So, him being back, has me thinking he’s good to go on Sunday versus the Seahawks.
It’s not a great matchup with the Seahawks but Forte is good enough to overcome the odds. If Forte practices all week and is all systems go, you probably have to start him. Just expect Michael Bush to snake those TD’s if the Bears are near the goal line.
Who this really hurts, is anyone that picked up Michael Bush thinking they got a starter for week 13. Sorry to you guys.
