The Chicago Bears listed Matt Forte as questionable for the team's Monday night game against the Dallas Cowboys, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Forte practiced on a limited basis on Saturday and he is still trying to come back from a high ankle sprain suffered in a Week 2 loss against the Green Bay Packers.

"I can sprint," Forte said earlier this week. "So I think I'll be good to go."

If Forte is unable to go, backup Michael Bush will again get the start. Bush is averaging only 3.4 yards per carry this season.

"Matt looks good,'' running backs coach Tim Spencer said. "Matt does everything that he's supposed to do to try to get ready. Looks good to me.''
