Bears running back Matt Forte (ankle) practiced in a limited session Thursday. SOURCE: Brad Biggs, Chicago TribuneFantasy Spin:Forte has only missed one game this year but he has exited with an injury to his ankle in three separate games. Unlike the first two, Forte managed to put together a solid fantasy day before leaving Sunday's game, rushing for 88 yards on 12 carries and scoring once. Fantasy owners might want to look in another direction for Week 17 since the running back isn't 100 percent.
