Bears' Matt Forte active; Zach Miller, Eddie Royal out

Matt Forte is playing Sunday.

Whether it’s the Bears running back’s final game at Soldier Field is a question for another day — once the Bears’ season comes to a close after the finale against the Lions.

Forte was one of 10 Bears players listed as questionable Friday. He injured his back Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Tight end Zach Miller, another questionable player because of a toe injury, was ruled out.

Center Hroniss Grasu (knee) and wide receiver Eddie Royal (illness), who were ruled doubtful Friday, will not play. Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins, a rare Bears player to start in every game thus far, was ruled out with an ankle injury. Cornerback Jacoby Glenn, tackle Tayo Fabuluje and nose tackle Terry Williams are also inactive.

Wide receivers Marc Mariani and Josh Bellamy will start. Rob Housler will start at tight end for Miller and Bruce Gaston will start for Eddie Goldman.
