Forte exits for the Bears, too

A win likely is coming for the Bears, but it’s coming at a cost.

With receiver Devin Hester, cornerback Charles Tillman, guard Lance Louis, and guard Chris Spencer already out, running back Matt Forte has limped to the locker room with an ankle sprain in the second half of a game that the Bears lead, 28-10.

The injury happened on a play that was ruled on the field as a fumble and a 52-yard touchdown return by Vikings safety Mistral Raymond.  The play was overturned on replay review, with Bears coach Lovie Smith wisely not throwing the red flag.

The Bears kept the ball and capped the drive with a field goal.

    A clear case of why the challenge rule that bit the lions should be changed now.

    Clearly down, ruled td, upstairs originally confirmed incorrectly.

    So the coach would not be allowed to ask the ref to look at it. That’s just not right.

    Wow, Marshall is single handedly destroying the Vikings defense. But what’s up with 2 pass plays with 2 yards to go, and ignoring AD?

    Vikings won’t win another game this year. Awful team.

    Haha you said Lovie wisely threw the challenge flag… That’s like saying Jim Schwartz outcoached his opponent. Good thing McCarthy coaches in the NFC North
