The Bears are already playing without one of their two most important offensive players, Jay Cutler. Now they may have lost the other one.
Chicago running back Matt Forte left today’s game against the Chiefs with an apparent right knee injury.
Forte was carrying the ball when his right foot planted in the Soldier Field turf just as Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson hit him in the right knee. He went to the sideline and was having his knee checked by the Bears’ medical staff.
The Bears ruled Forte out for the rest of the game. It’s 0-0 in Chicago.
UPDATE: When it rains, it pours for the Bears. Julius Peppers has also left the game and gone to the locker room, although Peppers was walking and has not been ruled out from returning.
UPDATE 2: Peppers returned.
