Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte missed practice on Wednesday because of a hyperextended right knee, but coach Marc Trestman is optimistic that Forte will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
“I’m still optimistic that [Forte will play on Sunday],” Trestman said. “I feel pretty good that he’ll start getting some work tomorrow. We’ll see where he is at, but I’m going in optimistic.”
Forte hurt his knee in the Bears’ loss to the St. Louis Rams last Sunday, but finished the game, gaining 117 all-purpose yards.
Forte has only been inactive six times in his six-year NFL career.
Trestman officially ruled out linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) and quarterback Jay Cutler(ankle) for the Vikings game.
