FORTE WILL BE OUT OF ACTION 2 TO 6 WEEKS
Tue, 18 Sep 2012 08:42 PM EDT

Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith declared Monday that Matt Forte does not have a high ankle sprain, and while he didn’t go into specifics, he did say Forte is still sore, explaining why the Bears brought back Kahlil Bell.

Forte was hurt during Thursday’s 23-10 loss to the Packers, and multiple outlets reported it’s a high ankle sprain, which usually keeps a player sidelined longer than an ordinary sprain.

“Matt did go down with an ankle injury. It is not a high ankle sprain, as has been reported,” Smith expounded on a radio show. “But right now, you know when you don’t finish the game and he still has some soreness, we’ll continue to monitor it, but we felt that we required another running back here, that’s why we brought back a guy who knows our system and has played good ball for us in Kahlil Bell.”

It isn’t known how long Forte will be out.

The Chicago Bears released Bell in the preseason after he reportedly refused to take a pay cut. They signed him to a one-year deal Saturday.

Smith refused to discuss a sideline clash from Thursday’s game when Jay Cutler screamed at offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb and bumped into him. Webb later brushed off the incident as insignificant, and Cutler explained his demeanor by saying he cares about winning.

“We’ve moved on from the last game,” Smith said. “We failed to play as well as we needed to. We didn’t handle some circumstances as we needed to. We like our football team. Things occur inside that you would like they weren’t portrayed in the public, but that happens sometimes and you go on. Baseball odds

“We don’t have any major issues except we lost the football game, and can’t wait for the team to get back on the field this week.”

The Chicago Bears host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, and it’ll be fascinating to see how the crowd reacts when the Chicago Bears have the ball within the red zone. Cutler was visibly upset with the fans for yelling while he was trying to call plays during the season-opening win over the Indianapolis Colts. Cutler later asked the fans to tone it down when the offense has the ball.

“We need 1st off to give the group a lot of things to cheer for to get them into the football game, but it is pretty simple what we’re asking, and our crowd knows that,” Smith announced. “When our offense is out there we’d like for them to be as quiet as practicable. And when the defense is out there we want them to scream and yell as much as they possibly can.

“But again, our crowd is great, they know that, and we’ll all be in a position to go this week.”
