Matt Forte nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Week
One of the bright spots in Chicago’s loss to Green Bay on Sunday came from Matt Forte. The running back, who is playing in a contract year, carried the Bears offense as he scored a touchdown in the 23-31 loss.
Now Forte is close to being rewarded for his play.
Forte was listed as one of three nominees for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award. The 29-year-old ran for 141 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown. Forte’s opponents are Jets running back Chris Ivory (91 rushing yards, 2 touchdowns) and 49ers back Carlos Hyde (168 yards and two touchdowns).
