Jets RB Matt Forte says he'll be ready Week 1

Jets running back Matt Forte continued to progress in his return from a hamstring injury during Tuesday's practice.

Forte participated in practice for just the third time in training camp. He participated in one practice early in camp, and also on Sunday. The Jets were off Monday.

All three times, Forte has done just position drills, and no 11-on-11 team periods.

"I'm feeling good," Forte said. "I'm just progressing week by week. I'll be out there soon. I do individual drills, and then I do a lot of conditioning stuff, to get back into football shape."

Fantasy Impact: 

Forte, who was injured while working out before camp, said after Tuesday's practice that he "definitely" will be available for the Jets' Sept. 11 regular season opener against the Bengals. But he isn't sure if he will play in any preseason games. He almost certainly won't play in Week 2 of the preseason, the story said.
