GREEN BAY, Wis. – Not that running back Matt Forte was going to do much good, considering how bad the offense looked on Thursday, but the running back left the game in the third quarter with an injured ankle and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Before the injury, Forte had carried the ball for seven carries and 31 yards, with most of his damage coming as a receiver, catching four balls for 49 yards.

Michael Bush replaced Forte, with Armando Allen also getting some work.
