Matt Forte rushed for 33 yards on 13 carries in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets on Monday night.

Forte added six catches for an additional 43 yards. As is normally the case against the Jets, there wasn't much running room to be found for Forte. He had a long run of eight yards, but did manage to pick up a couple of big first downs on third-down conversions. Forte has yet to find the end zone this season, but the sledding should be much easier next Sunday at home against Green Bay.

Geno Smith completed 26-of-43 passes for 316 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Jets' 27-19, Week 3 loss to the Bears on Monday night.

The stat line looks even better than Smith actually played. After showing considerable signs of improvement the first two weeks of the season, Smith reverted to his rookie-year self in this one. His two interceptions were back-breakers. His first pass of the game was an awful screen toss that was returned for a pick-six, while the second INT came in the red zone and was thrown right to Kyle Fuller in the end zone. Smith's decision-making on the final drive of the game also left many scratching their heads. The Jets host the Lions in Week 4.

Jay Cutler completed 23-of-38 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 3, 27-19 win over the Jets on Monday night.

Cutler and the Bears started off hot, going up 17-3 through 16 minutes of play. But after losing Brandon Marshall to a re-injured ankle, the Jets were able to dial up plenty of blitzes and get to Cutler for four sacks and a number of other hits. Marshall later returned but wasn't near 100 percent and didn't catch a pass for the first time in 117 games. Cutler found Martellus Bennett for both touchdowns, and hooked up with Alshon Jeffery eight times for 105 yards. Cutler will be a mid-range QB1 next week when the Bears host the Packers.

Bears FS Chris Conte exited Monday night's game against the Jets with a shoulder injury and will not return.

Conte hurt his shoulder last Sunday night and underwent extensive surgery on the injured wing in the offseason. He's been a playmaker so far this season, so his loss will be felt. Danny McCray and Brock Vereen will fill in.
Sep 22 - 10:46 PM

Chargers ILB Manti Te'o fractured his foot in Week 3 against the Bills, and is expected to miss multiple weeks.

Te'o isn't expected to be placed on injured reserve. Foot injuries have been a problem for Te'o. He suffered a stress fracture in his right foot in the preseason last year, missed three regular-season games, and had surgery this past offseason. The new injury is to the same foot. Te'o is purely a run stopper, and leads the Chargers with 19 tackles. Kavell Conner will take his spot on defense.

Eric Decker exited Monday night's game against the Bears after aggravating his hamstring injury and will not return.

Decker was noticeably still battling the pulled hammy and playing sparingly throughout the first half. He caught his lone target for 19 yards before heading to the sideline. Consider Decker highly questionable for Week 4 vs. the Lions.

Brandon Marshall aggravated his right ankle injury in the second quarter of Monday night's game against the Jets but later returned to start the second half.

Marshall hurt his ankle while blocking. He limped off the field under his own power before making his way to the locker room. Prior to exiting, Marshall had zero catches on three targets. He missed about seven minutes of game time.

Lions signed LB Josh Bynes off the Ravens' practice squad.

Bynes appeared in 15 games last season for Baltimore, making six starts and grading out as a top-15 inside linebacker at Pro Football Focus. He's a run stopper at 6'1/240. Lions DC Teryl Austin was with Bynes in Baltimore last season. Detroit needs the help after losing MLB Stephen Tulloch to a torn ACL.
