Bears RB Forte game-time decision

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte will be a game-time decision to play against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night as he continues recovering from a sprained ankle.

Forte was injured against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 13 and has missed one game. He practiced on Saturday after getting limited work most of lat week.

"It's a game-time decision for Matt," coach Lovie Smith told WBBM radio in Chicago, according to ESPN Chicago. "He's made a lot of progress. We'll get over to the stadium, see how he does then and decide."

Michael Bush would start in Forte's place again if Forte is unable to play.

In other Bears injury news, wide receiver Earl Bennett (hand) is questionable and Smith said rookie fullback Evan Rodriguez (knee) will not play.
