Matt Forte Injury Update: Bears to bring RB Ryan Grant in for a workout
Michael C. Wright is confirming earlier reports that the Chicago Bears are bringing in RB Ryan Grant in for a workout today at Noon. According to Wright, Grant has also already had contract offers from other teams, so we have to assume that he is waiting to see who the highest bidder will be.
With that said, this does also hint that Matt Forte will still be out for a while, and that the team might not be impressed with the efforts of newly re-signed RB Kahlil Bell. Bell saw plenty of action last week, his first week back since being re-signed by the team, but his output was a whopping 2.0 yards per carry. He finished the game versus the rams with 10 carries for 20 yards, 18 of which came on a single run.
Grant was placed on the Packers IR in 2010 after suffering a season-ending ankle injury, and, despite playing in 15 games last season, only contributed 559 yards rushing on the year. Stay tuned for more updates...
