Lovie Smith hopeful that Matt Forte will practice this week

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bears head coach Lovie Smith is hopeful that running back Matt Forte will return to practice this week.

Michael Bush only had 18 carries for 55 yards and 1 touchdown during Sunday’s win over the Rams.

While Bush is a good running back, Forte is clearly the better player and once the Bears get him back they’ll be a better team.
