Matt Forte injury: Bears RB exits with ankle injury

Forte was injured in the second half of the Bears win.


Despite the Chicago Bears 28-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, they'll still need the right dominos to fall to get into the playoffs. They'll need all the help they can in addition to the Minnesota Vikings losing next week. But their starting running back wasn't in tip top shape after the win.

Forte left the game in the second half with the injury after picking up 88 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. Kahlil Bell and Armando Allen picked up Forte's work load after he exited the game. No word yet if the injury could effect Forte's status for the Bears regular season finale against the Detroit Lions.

If the Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers Sunday night, the Bears need to beat the Lions and then must hope for a Minnesota Vikings loss to the Green Bay Packers and a Seahawks loss to the St. Louis Rams next week to nab a wild card spot.
