Bears RB Michael Bush is active and was not on the injury report, but is reportedly still dealing with the shoulder injury. Matt Forte is active and expected to start. If you waited on him, get him in your lineups. If you are picking between Bush and Forte, it's basically a tossup, with so much murkiness around the injuries, but we'd go with Forte. Bush could steal some goal line work.
TE Evan Rodriguez (knee)
LB Alex Albright (neck), DT Kenyon Coleman (knee), C Phil Costa (back), S Matt Johnson (hamstring), DT Jay Ratliff (ankle)
P Chris Jones (left knee)
LB Anthony Spencer (shoulder)
WR Miles Austin (hamstring), DT Sean Lissemore (chest), S Gerald Sensabaugh (calf), DT Marcus Spears (knee), RB Lawrence Vickers (illness), LB DeMarcus Ware (hamstring), LB Kyle Wilber (thumb)
Bears RB coach Tim Spencer said, "Matt [Forte] looks good... Matt does everything that he's supposed to do to try to get ready. Looks good to me.'' It sounds like Forte will suit up Monday night, but we wont officially know until inactives are announced 90 minutes prior to game time. It's a risky play, and even if he goes, Forte could be limited. Owners planning to gamble should have Kahlil Bell rostered as a fallback plan. Earl Bennett isn't worth a start even when healthy.
