Matt Forte not asked to do much in third exhibition game
by Igor Mello |

Bears running back Matt Forte was not asked to do much during Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks. Forte was limited to two series with the first unit. He took his first handoff for a gain of 11 yards and finished the game with 17 yards on three carries.

The 28-year-old led the league in touches last year and doesn't need to prove anything during the preseason. He ranked third with 289 carries, and his 74 receptions also ranked third among running backs in 2013.

Matt Forte trying to break trend
by Larry Hartstein |

Bears running back Matt Forte, who turns 29 in December, said he is not going to join the list of backs who deteriorate rapidly as they near 30. He told the Chicago Tribune he's aiming to break the stereotype of "old running backs going downhill."

"This offseason I feel better than I have the past five or six offseasons. I got my rest and I know how to take care of my body now,' he said. "Yeah, it is going to be harder and harder every year, but as long as you continue to have your set routine and stick to it, and a lot of prayer too, that helps a lot. Health is the main deal."

Forte led the NFL in touches last year. He ranked third with 289 carries, and his 74 receptions also ranked third among running backs.

"It's hard to take Matt off the field, but for the best interests of the team we should take him off a little bit and get him rested," offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer told the paper. "You say, 'Next drive we are going to take him out.' And you look at him on the sideline and he doesn't look tired, so it is hard to take him out."

Matt Forte expects another big year in new system
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bears running back Matt Forte had a big year in 2013 under new head coach Marc Trestman with a career-high 1,933 yards from scrimmage, which ranked as the fifth most in franchise history, reports ESPN.

In his second year for Trestman, Forte expects to do even better.

"Last year, we had to figure out what we were gonna be good at," Forte said. "And I think that’s just being balanced between the run and the pass. We kind of started out heavy pass early last season, and kind of sprinkling in runs. Then we found out what kinds of runs the O-line likes to block and were good at with the tight ends. Then we started doing different types [of runs]. [Offensive coordinator Aaron] Kromer is good at mixing them up between runs. Being balanced this year and already knowing with the offensive line likes to block is gonna give us a little head start."

Ka'Deem Carey drafted by Bears in Round 4
by Igor Mello |

With the 116th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears selected running back Ka'Deem Carey from Arizona.

Carey was one of the top backs in the nation, cracking the 100-yard mark in every one of his games in 2013. He totaled 1,885 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground, averaging 5.4 yards per carry despite serving a one-game suspension at the start of the 2013 season. He also had 26 receptions for 173 yards and one touchdown.

Carey has a chance to slot behind Matt Forte as the team's second running back in the depth chart.

Bears looking for help behind Matt Forte
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Bears plan to add a running back either through the draft or free agency to help ease the workload for Matt Forte, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

No running back in the NFL touched the ball more than Forte in 2013. He had 289 carries and 74 receptions, setting career highs with 1,339 rushing yards and 594 receiving yards.

This offseason, the Bears cut Michael Bush, but all they have now behind Forte is Shaun Draughn, who had four rushes last season, to join Michael Ford, who spent his rookie year on special teams.

The reports says that either through the draft or with a late free-agent pickup, the Bears need a complementary piece, but one who, were Forte to be injured, could carry the load.
