Bears running back Matt Forte is back to work.

Forte, who suffered an ankle injury in Week Two against the Packers that was, at first, believed to be a serious high ankle sprain, is active for tonight’s game against the Cowboys.

The news is not as good for the Cowboys, who will be without outside linebacker Anthony Spencer. He’s inactive with a pectoral injury.

The Bears’ inactives are fullback Evan Rodriguez, guard Edwin Williams, offensive tackle Chris Williams, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, receiver Earl Bennett, defensive end Cheta Ozougwu and defensive tackle Nate Collins.

The Cowboys’ inactives are Spencer, punter Chris Jones, safety Matt Johnson, linebacker Alex Albright, center Phil Costa, defensive tackle Jay Ratliff and defensive tackle Kenyon Coleman.
