Bears' Matt Forte practices on limited basis after being sidelined by right knee injury


LAKE FOREST, Illinois — Chicago Bears running back practiced Wednesday on a limited basis after being sidelined by a knee injury.

Forte sat out Monday's 22-19 win at San Diego because of a right knee injury he suffered against Minnesota the previous week.

Coach says Forte is "not full-go yet" but is "making progress."

Rookie carried the load with Forte sidelined against the Chargers and ran for 72 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown. He added 70 yards receiving.

The Bears (3-5) visit St. Louis this week.
