In an update from Halas Hall today, Head Coach Lovie Smith is now saying that Matt Forte does NOT have a high ankle sprain. Still no word however on his availability for this Sunday and the St. Louis Rams. The Bears did sign Kahlil Bell for some insurance if Forte can't go.

"Matt did go down with an ankle injury. It's not a high ankle sprain, as has been reported," Smith said. "He still has some soreness. We'll continue to monitor it, but we felt like we needed another running back here, so we brought back a guy that knows our system and has played good ball for us in Kahlil Bell."

Of course, Lovie loves to keep his injury reports quiet, so we probably won't know anything until later in the week. Stay tuned...
