Chicago Coach Lovie Smith Thinks RB Matt Forte Will be in Camp

Bears Coach Lovie Smith refused to speculate either way on Forte earlier this week and made it clear that the Bears are moving on with the players they have, John Mullin of CSNChicago reports.

On Thursday Smith changed direction and, without being asked about Forte, twice volunteered that he was looking forward to having Forte.

“Can’t wait to get down to training camp, to get a few more of our guys back out there in the mix,” Smith said, mentioning, “Brian Urlacher, get Matt Forte back out there, those guys.”

Later Smith included Forte in his thoughts on the Bears’ running game for 2012: “We’re adding Michael Bush to the mix with Matt [Forte], Kahlil [Bell], Armando [Allen], other good football players.”
