Sure sufficient, the video shows Forte sprinting up a hill with a rope and weight attached to his waist. He moves speedily up the grassy incline as miniature dogs bark just off-screen. All in all, it appears like a fairly decent spot to devote a Memorial Day weekend.
The report, which originated in the Chicago Tribune, stated that the Bears are privately concerned arthritis could set in, top to a chronic issue for the 26-year-old back.
Forte’s home conditioning techniques definitely don’t make it appear like he’s treating his knees like pieces of fine china. Forte’s agent, Adisa Bakari, felt compelled to speak out on the situation.
“Matt Forte is amongst the most, if not the most, durable, all-purpose running back in the NFL,” Bakari told the Chicago Sun-Instances. “The 2011 season was the very first season of his career that he missed any games. Had the Bears been playoff contenders, he could have returned for the balance of the season. To question his durability at this stage in his profession is absurd.”
Forte most likely believed his consistent production on the field had extended considering that answered any questions about his durability. It has to be frustrating to be concerned that might not be sufficient.
