Matt Forte Injury Update: MCL Sprain Will Require MRI On Monday

Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the injury to Matt Forte in today’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs is a sprained MCL. Charlie Casserly noted on CBS this afternoon that the team will seek more information on Monday via an MRI, so you can expect more details to come sometime late Monday or even Tuesday. For now, Jensen has the scoop:

Bears running back Matt Forte is believed to have suffered an MCL sprain in his right knee, according to a league source. Forte, though, will require further testing for he and the Bears to have a full handle on the severity of his knee injury.

He suffered the injury in the first quarter, when Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson drilled him in the right knee. He was tended to on the field, and he walked off under his own power, with a slight limp.
