Coaches said that Forte, who’s dealing with an ankle injury, looked fine at practice Wednesday. There was some fear that he wouldn’t be able to play against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend, but it now appears more likely that he will be able to suit up.
Despite the good news on the Forte front, the Bears were without Briggs (ankle), Hester (concussion), Jeffery (knee) and Tillman (ankle), along with tight end Kellen Davis (ankle) and offensive lineman Chris Spencer (knee).
