The 2011 season saw Forte do just about everything for the Bears offense. He was among the league leaders in rushing yards and average yards per carry before a knee injury sidelined him for the final four games of the year.
In addition to his rushing ability, Forte has been one of the best pass-catching running backs in the NFL since entering the league in 2008. Despite playing in only 12 games, Forte was sixth amongst running backs in receptions with 52.
