Better IMO.

I'm fairly certain the Bears will sign somebody off the street, but as of right now, Bush is going to get all the work out of the BEars backfield.

The Bears are "taking a look" at free agent RB Steve Slaton.
It sounds like they're giving him a tryout on Friday or over the weekend. The Bears already have their Week 2 game out of the way after losing to the Packers on Thursday night. Slaton would be insurance for Matt Forte (ankle). Forte could miss a month or more with what's believed to be a high ankle sprain.

Just signed Khalil bell. He tore it up a couple games last season when forte was hurt, but they cut him this year so not sure how good he really is

"Updating an earlier report, coach Lovie Smith indicated Monday that Forte did not sustain a high ankle sprain this past Thursday against the Packers, ESPN Chicago reports. "Matt did go down with an ankle injury. It's not a high ankle sprain, as has been reported," Smith said Monday on WBBM 780-AM Radio.

Recommendation: Though Forte did not sustain the more severe variety of ankle sprains, he is still sore and his Week 3 status remains iffy enough for the Bears to have added some running back depth by re-signing Kahlil Bell.

Great news for Forte owners that it is not a high-ankle sprain. That's easily a 4 week injury and then whatever time it takes to get your cuts back. Let him sit this week and hopefully he will be back next week at almost full strength.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Forte ruled out against Rams
Bears will give running back extra time to heal sprained right ankle
By Brad Biggs, Chicago Tribune reporter
9:30 p.m. CDT, September 21, 2012


Lovie Smith said Matt Forte has made progress with his sprained right ankle. But Forte did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams at Soldier Field.

Both teams could be without their top backs as Steven Jackson is questionable with a groin injury. Jackson has not practiced this week either.

With extra time before the Oct. 1 Monday night game at Dallas, the Bears will hope Forte can make significant progress next week. Michael Bush will start in Forte's place, and the recently re-signed Kahlil Bell could get action along with Armando Allen.

"Michael's excited about playing too," Smith said. "When you're the backup running back, you want to get reps, and I can't think of a running back that's ever had too many carries."

Hopefully it isn't as bad as they originally said it was and he can be back next week.

I have Bush in two leagues, and I happen to be playing "Forte-Owners" in both of those leagues this week..... I'm glad I've had a man-crush on this guy since his college days!
