Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte
suffered a slight hyperextension of his right knee in Sunday's loss to the
Bears coach Marc Trestman also announced Monday that quarterback Jay Cutler
remains week-to-week with a high ankle sprain. Cutler is not expected to play
Sunday in Minnesota, but Trestman is "totally confident" that Cutler will
play again at some point this season.
Forte has carried the ball 191 times for 851 yards and seven touchdowns in 11
games this year. Trestman is optimistic about his status.
Linebacker Lance Briggs, who has missed the last four games with a fractured
shoulder, likely will not play Sunday.
The 6-5 Bears are tied with the Detroit Lions for first place in the NFC
