Fox: Knee injuries to Forte, Royal likely not season-ending

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Chicago Bears coach John Fox says he does not think the knee injuries running back Matt Forte and veteran Eddie Royal suffered in Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings are season-ending.

He does not anticipate them needing surgery, either.

A day after Forte injured his right knee and Royal hurt his left one, Fox said they were ''still in evaluation'' and did not have an exact diagnosis.'' Losing either player - particularly Forte - for an extended time would be a big blow for the rebuilding team.
