Aug. 27, 20167:42 PM PT8:42 PM MT9:42 PM CT10:42 PM ET2:42 GMT10:42 AM 北京时间7:42 PM MST9:42 PM EST9:42 PM CT6:42 UAE (+1)22:42 ET1:42 - Forte (hamstring) and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) made their preseason debuts on Saturday.
Analysis: Forte, signed in March after eight seasons in Chicago, had 28 yards on 10 carries and added two catches for 9 yards.
Aug. 17, 20164:41 PM PT5:41 PM MT6:41 PM CT7:41 PM ET23:41 GMT7:41 AM 北京时间4:41 PM MST6:41 PM EST6:41 PM CT3:41 UAE (+1)19:41 ET22:41 - Forte remains confident he'll be ready to play in the season opener despite a hamstring injury and he took a big step toward that goal Wednesday when he participated in his first full practice.
Analysis: Before Sunday, Forte hadn't even participated in individual drills since Aug. 2. He appeared to have little concern about his health when talking Tuesday, his second straight practice in which he did positional drills after the Jets were off Monday. Forte likely won't play Friday at Washington and instead seems poised to make his preseason debut the following week against the Giants.
Aug. 16, 20163:16 PM PT4:16 PM MT5:16 PM CT6:16 PM ET22:16 GMT6:16 AM 北京时间3:16 PM MST5:16 PM EST5:16 PM CT2:16 UAE (+1)18:16 ET21:16 - Forte has his sights set on the regular season. The New York Jets running back just needs his hamstring to be ready, too. Despite growing concerns over the health of one of the Jets' key players on offense, Forte is confident he'll be able to play in the season opener against Cincinnati on Sept. 11.
Analysis: Forte tweaked a hamstring while running on his own before camp opened nearly three weeks ago and hasn't fully participated in a practice during training camp. He did individual drills Tuesday, though, as he did Sunday. The Jets were off Monday, but it marked consecutive practices that the 30-year-old running back was on the field.
Aug. 14, 20165:05 PM PT6:05 PM MT7:05 PM CT8:05 PM ET0:05 GMT8:05 AM 北京时间5:05 PM MST7:05 PM EST7:05 PM CT4:05 UAE (+1)20:05 ET23:05 - Coach Todd Bowles says Forte is "still day-to-day, week-to-week," despite the fact that the regular-season opener is just four weeks away. Forte spent his first eight NFL seasons with Chicago, establishing himself as a versatile threat out of the backfield.
Analysis: The Jets, who signed him to a three-year, $12 million contract in March, envision him as a lead back who also can provide a pass-catching presence for Fitzpatrick. Because of his experience, the 30-year-old Forte might not need a full training camp to prepare for the season. But Bowles insisted he needs to see something from the running back in the next few weeks.
July 31, 20163:41 PM PT4:41 PM MT5:41 PM CT6:41 PM ET22:41 GMT6:41 AM 北京时间3:41 PM MST5:41 PM EST5:41 PM CT2:41 UAE (+1)18:41 ET21:41 - Coach Todd Bowles said "it's safe to say" he will sit out the preseason opener next Thursday night against Jacksonville because of a sore hamstring that's kept him out of practice.
Analysis: Forte injured the hamstring while running on his own before the team reported for training camp last week. He received treatment on the leg during a portion of practice, and Bowles said there have been no setbacks. The Jets are being cautious in his recovery, trying to avoid rushing him back too quickly. Forte has participated in individual drills on just one day of camp, but the Jets aren't concerned the injury could linger into the regular season.
Mar. 14, 20168:54 AM PT9:54 AM MT10:54 AM CT11:54 AM ET15:54 GMT11:54 PM 北京时间8:54 AM MST10:54 AM EST9:54 AM CT19:54 UAE11:54 ET14:54 - Forte envisions having a big role in New York's offense and hopes quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs so the team can build off its 10-6 season.
Analysis: Forte signed a three-year, $12 million deal with the Jets last week after spending his first eight NFL seasons with Chicago. He says he was "surprised" the Bears declined to offer him even a "mid- to low-range" deal in free agency. Forte is 30, an age at which NFL running backs typically begin to decline, but he says the Jets talked to him about being "an every-down back."
Mar. 10, 20169:37 AM PT10:37 AM MT11:37 AM CT12:37 PM ET17:37 GMT1:37 AM 北京时间10:37 AM MST12:37 PM EST11:37 AM CT21:37 UAE12:37 ET16:37 - The Jets announced Thursday night that they signed free-agent running backs Forte and Khiry Robinson. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that the Jets also agreed in principle to re-sign running back Bilal Powell.
Analysis: After spending his first eight NFL seasons in Chicago, Forte will likely replace the departed Chris Ivory as the starter in the Jets' backfield. Forte, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, ranks second in Bears history to Hall of Famer Walter Payton in several categories, including yards rushing.
Feb. 12, 20167:16 AM PT8:16 AM MT9:16 AM CT10:16 AM ET15:16 GMT11:16 PM 北京时间8:16 AM MST10:16 AM EST9:16 AM CT19:16 UAE10:16 ET13:16 - Forte won't be returning to the Chicago Bears for a ninth season. The two-time Pro Bowl running back announced on Instagram Friday morning that the team informed him this week it will not offer him a contract for next season. The team confirmed it, calling him one of the "all-time great Bears."
Analysis: Forte will be an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team beginning March 9. Forte, whose 12,178 rushing yards and 487 receptions with the Bears ranks only behind Walter Payton on the club's all-time list, hits the open market at age 30 and off a career-low 898 rushing yards in 13 games last season. The two-time Pro Bowler has spent his entire eight-year career with Chicago, having been taken by the Bears in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
