“Day to day, I just see how it feels,” Forte said on Saturday. “It’s always really stiff in the morning because I’ve been asleep. It hurts in the morning, but once I get warmed up, I just try to see how it feels. I’ve been doing some straight-ahead jogging this week which has been OK, but I’m nowhere near 100 percent.
