Out since Nov. 1, Bears running back Matt Forte is on track to play Thanksgiving Day against the Packers, barring an unforeseen setback, according to ESPN.

Forte sprained the MCL in his right knee in the team's Week 8 matchup against the Vikings but went through an extensive pregame warmup before Sunday's game against the Broncos without any setbacks, the report says.

With rookie Jeremy Langford playing well in his place and Forte not expected to return to the club next season due to free agency, it remains unclear how many carries to expect from Forte on Thursday.
