Report: Bears RB Matt Forte injured, but not severely

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is reporting that Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte @MattForte22's injured ankle "does not appear to be severe enough to threaten him long-term." Forte is likely questionable for the Bears' Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Michael Bush @michaelbush29 is in line to see a significant increase in playing time should Forte be unable to play. Bush rushed for 60 yards and two TDs last week.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bush is an adequate replacement for Matt Forte for our fantasy purposes. The Bears will also be without Devin Hester @D_Hest23 because of a concussion. Bush is a must-own player across all league formats. He may not be a bonafied RB2, but given Chicago's commitment to the run, Bush is a viable flex on most teams. There is a bunch of turnover going on at the running back position right now so trust the systems/offenses to produce rather than attempt to distinguish which back has more individual talent.
