Jaguars vs. Bears injury report: RB Matt Forte's ankle would have limited him on Wednesday

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Bears running back Matt Forte's ankle was just sore after their win over the Cowboys, and nothing more.

The Chicago Bears did not hold a practice on Wednesday, due to them playing on Monday Night Football, but they are still required to release an official injury report. Had the Bears practiced, they would have had four players on the injured list with fullback Evan Rodriguez as the only player who would not have been able to practice.

Starting running back Matt Forte would have been limited due to the ankle that has been bothering him. After their win over the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Lovie Smith said that Forte had general soreness:

"It was good to see Matt Forte back out there," Smith said. "He didn't come away with anything other than just normal soreness from a game in his ankle, even though he went out after that first play."

The other starter who would have been limited at Wednesday's practice, had it been held, would be defensive end Julius Peppers, who also had an ankle injury.
