Arlington, TX – Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte will be active for Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Forte, who was listed as questionable on the team's injury report with an ankle sprain, missed last week's 23-6 win over the St. Louis Rams.
In two games this season, Forte has rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown while also catching seven passes for 89 yards.
Wide receiver Earl Bennett, who is dealing with a hand injury, is inactive for Chicago.
Dallas will be without two defensive starters in Pro Bowl nose tackle Jay Ratliff (ankle) and outside linebacker Anthony Spencer (shoulder), as well as center Phil Costa (back) and defensive end Kenyon Coleman (knee).
