                 === Bears' Forte dealing with knee injury ===
 
 Lake  Forest,  IL (SportsNetwork.com) -  Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte
 suffered  a  slight hyperextension of  his right knee  in Sunday's loss to the
 Rams.
 
 Bears  coach  Marc Trestman also  announced Monday that quarterback Jay Cutler
 remains  week-to-week with a high ankle sprain. Cutler is not expected to play
 Sunday  in Minnesota,  but Trestman  is "totally  confident" that  Cutler will
 play again at some point this season.
 
 Forte  has carried the ball 191 times for 851 yards and seven touchdowns in 11
 games this year. Trestman is optimistic about his status.
 
 Linebacker  Lance Briggs,  who has missed the last four games with a fractured
 shoulder, likely will not play Sunday.
 
 The  6-5  Bears are  tied with  the Detroit Lions  for first  place in the NFC
 North.
