SHARE Bears bringing Matt Forte along slowly after hamstring pull in OTAs

BOURBONNAIS, Ill.–The Bears don’t have any major concerns when it comes to the hamstring muscle that Matt Forte pulled back in June during the third week of OTA’s, but they’re also being cautious.

That is why the running back was held out of inside run drills during practice Saturday night. He’s been getting a lighter load as they work to bring him along slowly and smartly, and that’s given the slimmed down Kevin Jones and Garrett Wolfe some more opportunities, as well as Adrian Peterson. Jones busted off a great move in the open field Saturday.

“He had that injury late in the OTAs, so we’re just kind of trying to watch that and limit his reps a little bit,” offensive coordinator Ron Turner said.

The next practice starts in an hour. We’ll have some Twitter updates (BradBiggs) from the field after it gets going.
