Bears RB Matt Forte left Thursday night's game against the Packers midway through the third quarter with an ankle injury and the team announced before the end of the quarter that he would not return.

Forte had a team-best 31 rushing yards on seven carries and 49 receiving yards on four catches before leaving the game after it appeared Packers S Charles Woodson rolled on his ankle while being tackled.

Forte went to the locker room under his own power. He reportedly got his ankle taped on the sideline but said he couldn't cut on it and departed with medical staff.
