The Bears have lost players to injuries during the voluntary offseason workout program the past few years, but there is no concern Matt Forte's hamstring strain is serious. With only a few minutes remaining in Wednesday's OTA session at Halas Hall, Forte left the field with a slight limp. He did not participate in Thursday's session, and he could be held out the next two weeks but it will only be as a precautionary measure. Multiple sources said Forte is fine and one added, ``I saw him today and if there was a limp it was just a slight hitch. He's fine.'' The Bears gave Forte an MRI, but again that was a precautionary measure. If any player gets hurt, he gets every appropriate test. The Bears have eight OTA sessions remaining over the next two weeks and if a player has any health concern, he's held out. The Bears been taking it easy with defensive tackles Tommie Harris and Marcus Harrison, who both have knee issues. Forte's durability has been proven over the last two seasons. Forte made 677 carries in his senior season at Tulane and last year as a rookie.
No worries for Forte
