Bears running back Matt Forte, who is recovering from a sprained MCL, says he won't return to the field until he is 100. How much does that have to do with the fact that he doesn't have the long-term contract he desires?
ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio told "The Dan Patrick Show" on Thursday that Forte is thinking of his future right now.
"I think Forte will play if he is truly healthy," said Florio. "But if he believes he's not healthy he's not going to play. He's not going to risk it."
Florio went on to say that if Forte would be more likely to play hurt if he had the security of a long-term deal.
