During Sunday’s win over the Cardinals, Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte aggravated the same ankle that he injured earlier in the season. Forte made it clear that he’ll play in next week’s regular season finale. “I can’t see myself missing next week,” Forte said. Forte is of course frustrated with getting injured again. “Frustrating,” Forte said. “But I just got to get healthy for next week. I would have liked to finish the game and get over 100 yards and all that stuff.” If the Bears want to have a chance at winning next week’s game and possibly making the playoffs, they’re going to need Forte to play and be effective.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
