Matt Forte Injury Update: RB Receives Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection, Won't Comment On Timetable

Injured Bears running back Matt Forte received a platelet-rich plasma injection on Tuesday, which could hasten his return to the football field. However, the effects of the treatment won't be known for some time and Forte refused to speculate on when he might return:

"I'm just treating it, just like any other injury. I'm going to wait until I get 100 percent out there, because I don't want to hurt myself," he said. "And me not being a 100 percent, I'm going to hurt he team as well, because I cant do what I'm supposed to do." [sic]

The injection could speed up the healing process by as much as a week.
