Forte looks good to go
Posted Dec. 20 at 02:20 PM
Matt Forte practiced again on Saturday and says the toe he injured in the week 15 game against the Saints won’t be a factor on Monday night against Green Bay.
"That's the most important thing is don't think about it, because then you don't worry about it and you're not trying to protect it,'' Forte said in a blurb posted by the Chicago Sun-Times.. "So don't worry about it and just go out there and just play. It feels good.''
Forte isn’t fully healthy, but my feeling is that fantasy leaguers should go ahead and use him. The weather conditions will be brutal for this game – probably under 5 degrees – so the Bears should look to rely heavily on the run. The Packers rank 26th in run defense and have been particularly vulnerable recently.

would this development change where you have Forte ranked?- the matchup is really tempting...

No. His status hasn't really changed since Friday. He was expected to participate in the Saturday practice. I was just confirming that it actually happened.
